Worthy of love – bankrupt without it

Recently I stumbled across this phrase: ‘(I’m) bankrupt without love …’ Bankrupt? Being bankrupt is not a position anyone would want to be – surely!

In the words of Piglet and Pooh:

Piglet: “How do you spell love?

Pooh: “You don’t spell it. You feel it.”

“Love does not consist so much of looking at one another but of looking together in the same direction.”

  • “Love never gives up.
  • Love cares more for others than for self.
  • Love doesn’t want what it doesn’t have.
  • Love doesn’t strut,
  • Doesn’t have a swelled head,
  • Doesn’t force itself on others,
  • Isn’t always “me first,”
  • Doesn’t fly off the handle,
  • Doesn’t keep score of the sins of others,
  • Doesn’t revel when others grovel,
  • Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth,
  • Puts up with anything,
  • Trusts God always,
  • Always looks for the best,
  • Never looks back, but keeps going to the end.”

As with the giving of love so it is with the receiving of love, they’re equally vital – vital to know that one is valued and loved, worthy of love.

Happy Valentines Day every day! You’re loved! You’re worth it!

Stay in love. Stay loved. Take care, Suz 😊
