Love can be expressed in a multitude of ways. Personally I feel as though naming every way of expressing affection is impossible due to the combination of countless unique personality types and the different love languages. However, I feel like this post is appropriate to the season of love we're in, Valentine's Day, and, in my own personal life, this is how I feel love is taking place. Hope you enjoy. Love is unconditional Love is commitment to each other, even when the butterflies go away Love is supporting each other’s dreams and desires, because you know how much those things mean to them Love is celebrating their victories Love is being there when they’re down, even when you don’t understand why Love is getting to the root of problems, working together to solve anything that life throws at you Love is teamwork in everyday life Love is surprise hugs and kisses on the nose Love is full of surprises, big or small; gestures to remind them what they mean to you and that you're always thinking of them Love is remembering the little things they say, learning their habits, and paying attention to the things that mean the most to them Love is doing things for them that you don’t necessarily want to do Love is making sacrifices and putting your wants aside for their needs Love is when you find yourself staring at them because you can’t believe the connection you have is real Love is making tough decisions together and knowing you’re not alone Love is communication and complete honesty Love is respecting and honoring one another Love is being a patient, listening-ear when they just need to vent to you Love is trust and always giving them the benefit of the doubt Love is sharing your thoughts: funny, deep, random Love is taking care of one another Love is praying FOR and WITH each other Love is not going to bed angry with them - love is forgiveness Love is making sure they’re okay when they’re not with you, not worrying, but trusting that God will bring them back home to you Love is wanting to spend all your time with them Love is falling for them again and again, every time you look at them Love is not easy Love is a commitment and a word that should not be thrown around lightly
Love is expressed throughout daily life, not JUST a single day in February
Make sure you show them love everyday, because that makes Valentines Day even MORE special.

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.” 1 Corinthians 13:4-8
“Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.” Romans 12:9-10
