Do You Know How to Love?

I love with a true and kind heart.
I love myself in the ways I know best.
I reach out with Love and the Love returns to me.
I love you as you are, whole and good and true.

Do you love each child in their own special way?
Do you love your partner the way they can receive your love?
Do you know how your friends and family like to be loved?
Are you aware of how to love your best?

Have you learned the five basic languages of Love?
Do you understand how you prefer to be loved?

1) Quality time with no distraction

5) Gifts that show you care.

Our five younger grandkids all like a different way of being Loved.
We need to remember one way doesn’t translate the same for everyone.
What we need to learn is how to love each one in the way that works.
When we can be sensitive to our own love needs, we are more sensitive to others.

Take time to be with each one as they are.
Give yourself what you need as well.
Ask for what you really want and need.
Feed others with exactly what they want and need.

Take time to listen and respond with Love.
Give each person the form of love they can receive.
Step away from the relationship to see what works.
Give yourself the awareness and understanding to see.

Love is the answer to every question, doubt and fear.
Love is what needed to clear the air.
Love, not fake or overdone, but Love that is from the heart.
Love yourself and you will see it works to heal all wounds.

Remember everyone needs to be loved.
Love each one in the special way they get.
Love yourself and stay full of what is good.
Give all Love to have all Love,
I am loving you, Betty Lue

There is no difficulty that enough love will not conquer;
No disease that enough love will not heal;
No door that enough love will not open;
No gulf that enough love will not bridge;
No wall that enough love will not throw down;
No sin that enough love will not redeem.

 It makes no difference 
  how deeply seated may be the trouble,
How hopeless the outlook,
How muddled the tangle,
How great the mistake. 
A sufficient realization of love will dissolve it all.

 If only you could love enough, you would be the happiest 
and most powerful being in the world.
