L-O-V-E

It's 3am and I can't sleep because I can't stop thinking about this topic.
Please excuse my late night ramble, but I just had to get my thoughts out of my head.
____________________________________________________________________________________________________

So, we are officially in the month of February, the month of looooovvvvveeeee...
and this topic just happens to be (ironically) on my mind as of late.

No, I am not in LOVE now or have ever been, romantically speaking.
But that doesn't mean that I don't know what LOVE is.

I seriously think that Jack Johnson said it best when he wrote,
"Love is the answer. At least for most of the questions in my heart,
Like why are we here? And where do we go?
And how come it's so hard?"

LOVE is the answer to our entire existence.
Who are we? 
We are LOVED children of our Heavenly Father.

Why are we here on Earth? 
We are here on Earth to be tried of our LOVE for our Heavenly Father 
through our obedience to His commandments.

What is the point to life?
The whole point is to go through this Earthly life so that we can someday have the opportunity to become Gods and Goddesses of our own worlds, with our LOVED ones.

Even the answer to what the Atonement is, is LOVE.
Without LOVE, the universe would make no sense at all.


 Do I believe in LOVE? Yes, with everything that is in me, I do.
"I am one who believes that love, like faith, is a gift of God."
-Gordon B. Hinckley 
(read this beautiful talk here)

LOVE is real, people.
I don't care what kind we are talking about, whether it be LOVE of a friend, LOVE of Sibling, LOVE of a Neighbor,
or LOVE of Spouse; LOVE is the most powerful emotion we posses.
I think that it is important to believe in the power of LOVE, to cherish LOVE, to protect LOVE,
and for Heaven's sake, CELEBRATE LOVE!!!!
I hope someday that I will find someone who loves LOVE as much as I do.

So welcome February, the month of looooooovvvvvvveeee!
Here's to starting off the month with a heart full of it!
