The Language of Love

text size A A A
The Saints Pope?
You can search this entire world and will never, ever, find another picture of Merrill wearing a Saints jersey. They say the measure of love a man has for his wife, can be found in the colors he’s willing to wear…for her. It’s been no secret to those who know me that I’m a New Orleans Saints fan. I’ve flown to ATL to watch them beat the Falcons (love that trip) and today I drive to Indy to watch them beat the Colts…I hope. The tickets were given to me, so I there’s another measure of LOVE right there….the willingness to part with season tickets, to make a friend happy. I find it odd and a little bit exciting to think that The Language of Love translates well across all divides.
You can’t really describe Love, but like Porn, you know it, when you see it. “Understanding the Five Languages of Love”, Dr. James Dobson explains how we, as live beings, show our Love for each other in many different forms. I saw a blog this morning that said, “Men have sex to feel intimacy, while women must feel intimacy to have sex”. That may be the problem right there. Too many people arguing that Tomato is really pronounced Tomato….LOL. The ability to put on a Saints jersey, even though they win the Merrill Bowl every year, shows that Merrill loves me beyond reason, and is willing to don the hated colors to prove it. He may just feel some intimacy later. A good friend giving me her two 50 yard line tickets, shows me that she appreciates me, and wants me to know that she loves me. My accepting her tickets is my way of showing her that I love her too. The act of speaking words, is no more effective than me trying to kill fish with my mind, however, our actions, that is, what we’re willing to do for one another, is the true testament of our Love. Jesus said, “No greater love hath he, than the one who is willing to lay down his life for another”. I’m not dying for anyone today, but I can honestly admit, that I would….for some of you…in a New York Minute.

I’ve got to get these kids to Maw and Paws; which is another act of love on their part. See, it isn’t money, fame, power or even coffee that makes this world rotate, it’s us, as beings, showing love in appreciation of, and for, what’s been done for us. The Mercy rule; which I religiously try to follow states, “Blessed are the merciful, for they shall be shown mercy”. Send your love out into the world and it will never return void, because there is a space that exists within us all, that love will fill. I giggle at that visual. We all have the need to be loved, but I feel we also have the need to show it…the difference is dependent on which day of the week it is. We all know that God Loves His Saints (The Bible tells us so), well, Ima be there, when they come marching in….I love football, but I love the man who donned the jersey to show his love for me, even more. How can you show someone your love today? I have free NFL tickets…..She loves me, and I love her too. Be Blessed. Remember you set the Tone, you ARE the Example. BE KIND to each other. Show GRACE and MERCY to all those who cross your path today. With your Daily Affirmations complete, enjoy your Sunday.
