John 3:16 - "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son…."
Sometimes you may make the gifts personally or you purchase them and give them to the one you love. Some gifts will be expensive and some inexpensive but what really matters is you took the time to think about the one you love.
They were put in the same vases that once housed dozens of roses. What was so great about those dandelions? They sent a message to our moms that she was loved and thought of that day.
If you are in love you will give.
You might have given her flowers, carried her books or your time as you walked her home from school.
Maybe you cooked him a meal or attended a sporting event in which he participated.
When I would hear that the first questions that came to my mind were these:
First, when did you stop giving of yourself?
Second, why did you stop giving of yourself?
When you answer either one or both of those questions you will know why you are not in love with your spouse any more.
Maybe it has been a one way street. You have been the one giving for 5, 10, 15 years or more and there was no reciprocation. You have reached your limit in your mind and you are not going to give any more.
Maybe you stopped giving because the person you were giving to was giving their love and time to someone or something else. Some people's jobs or hobbies become the new loves in their lives.
When you stop giving to someone you stop loving them. Remember John 3:16 - "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son…."
It doesn't get any clearer than that. God loved and God gave. When you and I love we will give.
When we stop loving we stop giving and vice versa.
When you are in Love you will give. (Guys, I wouldn't try giving dandelions to your wife or girlfriend as a gift. Lol. Just Saying!)
Think On This:
Where there is no interest, there is no investment.
Age is like love. It can't be hidden.
Remember Valentine's Day is Next Week Don't Forget The One You Love.
