Love, the Strongest Emotion

I can still hear that song by Tina Turner going through my head. The song is “What’s love got to do with it.” Despite what the song says, love has everything to do with everything. Love has made more people do silly things than anything else. We are talking off the wall things to win a love. It seems that there is no end to what a person will do to win over a love. And the opposite is just as true. There seems to be no end to what a person will do because of a broken heart. Love is the most powerful emotion there is. It doesn’t end because of a divorce or a breakup. It carries on even after the love interest dies. A friend of mine lost his wife of over 50 years. He was relatively healthy but die after six months without his wife. People say that love and hate are the opposite sides of the same coin. I think they are exactly the same. They are both born the same, but hate is just love with great pain. When a person falls in love, there is an indelible mark made on our hearts. It doesn’t go away. It will remain with us for the rest of our lives. And even on into the life after death. There are times that I don’t want to love people. Because I know that they will hurt me and I don’t want to pain. But I see people in need. There was a good friend who lost her husband. She was lost and didn’t know what to do. I began to be with her and love her for who she is. We never kissed and hugged each other. But I loved her with all my heart. Her life came back into focus. This is what she needed that steady rock of love. We didn’t marry each other. You will never know what your love can do for another person until you open your heart and try. Lives will change and people can be healed even if you are in great pain. Let love work in your life and the lives of people who are in need.
