Lots of Love

      Believe it or not there are many different forms of love. There’s the love of parents, the love of children, the love of siblings, the love of friends, the love of boyfriends, the love of a fiancé or a husband, the love of a Pastor, and many, many other forms of love.

     I’ve heard people say that you can’t love more than one person at a time, but that’s not true. I love my parents, I love my son, I love my husband, I love my friends, my Pastor, my siblings, etc. I even love my ex’s. Different loves. I love my ex’s, but I’m not in love with them. I loved them, but didn’t want to marry them.

     All love is, is caring about someone. With my ex’s I care about them. I want them to have a great job, with a nice, loving family, and a house to call their own. I want them to be happy, and that is love.

    I can love a stranger or even an enemy. Whether I know someone or not I can still care about their soul and their happiness and that is love.

     Don’t limit yourself to thinking you can only love one person at a time. If you do that the one person you’ve chosen will be your whole life and one day you’ll regret that and even resent them. And what happens when that one person leaves you or dies? You’ll be miserable.

     So love as many people as you can. Love your friends, your family, the stranger that you just passed by (That stranger could one day be part of your family or maybe even your best friend ), and yes, even love your enemies because believe it or not they have souls and God tells us to love our enemies.
