A tender reminder that real love extends beyond words, and because it does the most glorious expressions of love are always conveyed in selfless actions that defy words.
“Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.”
John 15:13 – NIV
“Love knows nothing of short-hauls because it has committed itself for the long-haul.”
There are moments when the greatest wordsmiths can craft the tenderest phrases, and yet completely fail to capture even the slightest essence of what those words were meant to carry. It’s not that penmanship was lacking. It’s that words can only run in the shallows of great feelings. And so, when I say “I love you,” know that the words themselves may only run in the shallows, but the feelings from which they arise plumb the furthest depths of any ocean that could ever possibly exist.
Know that I love you very much!
