Love works, but you have to work at it. (Carey Nieuwhof, leadership mentor and author‏)

In spring, love is always in the air, but often it’s just a romantic, momentary, passing fancy. True love is an action; it’s acting toward another in his or her best interest because of the value you place on them. Lasting relationships will certainly involve deep emotion, but they will require constant attention and energy. It’s well worth the effort, of course.

Love is patient . . . Love never fails . . .  these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love (1 Corinthians 13:4, 8, 13).
