I Heart U

i heart uMas romantic daw kapag dahan-dahang sasabihin ang "I love you" sa isang tao. Pero mas nakakakilig daw kapag sa Tagalog ito sinambit, "Mahal Kita." Teka lang, mayroon bang pagkakaiba kapag sinasabi ang mga katagang ito. E ano ba ang ibig sabihin ng mga lines na ito?

Love is a word that has lost its foundational meaning. Some people confuse love with a certain emotion or feeling. Basta masabi ng isang lalaki na mahal niya ang isang babae, love na ba iyon? It is not based on emotion or warm fuzzy feelings. It is rooted on something else.

Think about this:

What food do you really, really love? Can you eat that food everyday? Three times a day? Pagkalipas ng ilang araw, tiyak na maghahanap ka na ulit ng ibang pagkain na magugustuhan mo. If your love is based on satisfying an emotion or fleshly drive, it will soon become a dead passive feeling. True love does have its feelings, but is not its foundation.

St. Paul tells that the Bible has a clear foundation of what True Love is about. Consider God's defintion!

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part,

Maybe you have heard this lines over and over but were you able to apply this in your current love relationships. It will be hard for us to say I love you if we haven't really experience it at all.

This Heart's day may we see the foundations of love grounded in God. That whenever we utter "I Love you" or "Mahal kita", we are ready to give love to those persons without expecting nothing in return. We simply love them. That's it! Wala sa paraan how we say it, its how we show that we really love them.

    The air is cold and it's Love's month.. My friends keep on talking bout dates, partners and love.and continuously asking me what is "Love" for me?

    Before I was struggling to define the word LOVE until i personally read Corinthians 13..I never thought that "love "is mostly defined by short-deep words.... patient, kind,not cruel,etc..Simple words but hard to understand.

    Until one day,Me and one of my closest friend experienced what the Living Word tells about love..
    we are stil ready to give love to those persons without expecting nothing in return..LOve in return..

    From that day onwards, whenever my friends ask me how do i define the word Love.. I just smile and give them this verse- COrinthians13.

    Wow,this article sure is amazing,it really gives the meaning of true love I HOPE I can use this reminders .

  • jenjen

    yep thats true..the fact that the guy/girl said "i love you" doesnt mean he really mean it...
    di ba action speaks better than words..
    pero marami pa rin yung mga nagkakamali ng pagpili ng mga "love" nila.

    wee true love waits ^^

    wow!!! at last, i found the site that suits me.. haha!!! i'm thankful of this True Love Waits program for helping me to think good deeds and to pick the right decisions a teenager should know. When i was 13 years old I attended the seminar of True Love Waits and it really touches my heart and tells me that to love God because i'm not yet a woman and i should give my time to God all the days of my life. i'm really blessed and thankful. More power and God bless!!!

    i just want to share this to every1.
    ang cute ng article mu..
    keep up!♥

    last Feb.14,2009 was the best, so far. i celebrated hearts' day (and i opt not to call it Valentine's Day) with a date with my most SPECIAL SOMEONE.
    hehehehe. Dont get me wrong, i have no boyfriend.
    nor MU.
    what makes this year different is that i celebrated it with the LOVER OF MY SOUL, Jesus Christ.♥
    instead of waking up early and texting 'sum1' special 2u.. or spending the whole day with that 'sum1'.. or talking the whole nyt with the sweetest words u can say 2that 'sum1'.. i finally realized that...hearts' day are not for 'lovers' after all.
    cguro papalag ang mga couples kung mababasa nila ito, but what im saying is kung ang relationship nyu brings u closer to God..go on. Yet, marami kcng 'milagro'ng nngyayri 2wing feb14...
    keeping pure s araw n yan is hard, ryt?
    feb14 dw kc eh..
    but u know wat?
    y dont u try it?
    nxt feb14.. celebrate it with the Author of Love.
    talk with Him, through prayers.
    write love letters, through your spiritual journal.
    read His book of love..the BIBLE.
    sing the timeless love songs... songs dedicated for Him.

    kung gaano tau kacreative with expressing love with the opposite sex, mas maging creative p sna tau pag s Knya.☺
    the question is,
    cud u giv Him chocolates,
    kisses and hugs?

    the answer:
    you cud giv Him the lushness of chocolates,
    the sweet smell of fresh flowers,
    and the warmth of ur hugs and kisses.

    you cud giv Him your life and your LOVE.
    nauna na nga xang nagbigay ng s Kanya eh.diba?♥

    lalo n s mga single..
    wala n ngang mas makakapuno sa tin kundi Siya.♥
    rather than grieving over the fact n wala kng boyfriend, wla kng kadate, malungkot ang feb14 at sinusumpa mu ito..

    hellur, gumising k.
    may date k kya.
    hnhintay k nga Niya lagi.
    peo lagi mo rin Siyang ini-INDIAN.♥

    your personal book of love with Him cud actually start now.
    try mung magstart s John, 4th book s new testament ng Bible.♥

    pagpalain k!♥
