What is love?


When my grandmother got arthritis, she couldn’t bend over and paint her toenails anymore.  So my grandfather does it for her all the time, even when his hands got arthritis too.  That’s love. Rebecca – age 8

When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different.  You know that your name is safe in their mouth. Billy – age 4

Love is what makes you smile when you’re tired. Terri – age 4

Love is what’s in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen. Bobby – age 7

You really shouldn’t say ‘I love you’ unless you mean it.  But if you mean it, you should say it a lot.  People forget. Jessica – age 8

He who does not love does not know God; for God is love. – John, the Evangelist -1 Jn 4:8
