Love is a canvas that captures the emotions of our hearts. While some Love is abstract and hard to define, other forms of Love can be clear and easy to interpret. People rarely take the time to examine the essence of Love. I recently found myself wanting to take a harder look at Love and all of its dimensions. In this day and age people have a hard time finding Love, committing to Love, and some even have a hard time admitting that they Love. I was having a conversation with my friend when the topic of Love came up. She shared a conversation she had with her boyfriend. Apparently she said something clever and her boyfriend laughed and said “this is why I Love you” referring to her witty remark. Before she had the chance to process the words he casually retracted the statement and stated “I have Love for you”. This left her with a puzzled face and hesitant to respond. Is having Love for someone different from someone simply loving you? For example, I have Love for the game of basketball and Jazz, but I Love my family. My friend and I pondered this topic for a while. Later that day I revisited the exhibit Love, I couldn’t help but wonder if the phrase “I have Love for you” is another way for people to stray from the commitment, and binding emotions of solid Love. Then again, maybe we shouldn’t give her boyfriend such a hard time. It’s possible his nerves wouldn’t allow him to leave himself in that vulnerable position. Love has the power to change our entire perspective on life. Perhaps examining something too closely can prevent us from seeing the big picture.
