What Is TRUE LOVE?
I created man in my image and likeness. Man came directly from me. As a spirit, man could not touch, nor taste, nor enjoy the gift of the earth. So, I went to the ground and made an earth suit for man. When I breathed life into him, man became human. Man was given the garden to tend. All the animals were named in a day. Although we were together, walking and talking in the garden, man was alone. I found that man needed someone just like himself to love, that is why I went inside man to make woman. Therefore man is a giver. Woman takes what man gives her, multiplies it, and returns it. Man gives the seed, then, woman gives back a child. Give a woman a word, and she'll give you a sentence." truth that will never change."

What is Love to you, my friend? Is love a feeling that we can choose to embrace or walk away from?
When I began my search for love, I recalled what a professor told me years earlier. His answer conclusively was 'there is no such thing as true love'. I was not surprised to hear that he had been married six times, and continues to live alone. Was this the way others felt also?
I went to the place most of us look to find the meaning of a word, Webster's. I found thoughts of love: physical love between man and woman, the object of affection, for the love of, and also God's love for mankind.
Wow, what does that mean? I felt that I understood human love, I had been dissatisfied by mans love many times. I remember telling God that I didn't need a man in my life, and unless he brought him to my door, I was finished with love.
What had been the reasons? I could not recall my childhood, and why the feelings of rejection, or the assurance of not having an opinion worth listening to? I never felt needed, or loved. Was this the truth? Or was it merely my 'mental map' that nobody else could see? What ever caused the way I saw love, to me, it was painful.
It wasn't until I had given up on myself that God spoke to me, in the form of a question.
"Do you want to find love? I am love!"
"Yeah sure you are."
"It is true. I am love, and I created you for me to love! Man was created for me to love and fellowship with. I did not want man to be alone, so I made woman to complement him, or complete him."
"God, why are you telling me this?"
"You have searched a long time to find true love. Why do you look on earth? The earth is a planet incapable of love. I gave the earth to you, to rule over, as a gift of love. See, in order for love to be fulfilled it must find someone like itself to give to. That is why
"Now that's a lot to ponder. So, does that work with other things, as well?"
"Yes, I have laws and ways that will not change, therefore if you give her grief, she will multiply this, too, and give you back a war."
"You're funny God."
"I know, look around you and see my sense of humor."
"In the bible it says 'love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, does not boast, is not proud. It is not rude, is not self-seeking, is not easily angered, and keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, and always perseveres. Love never fails'. This is a
"Than how can you say that you are love, God?"
"If you put me before the fact you will come to know me a little better. Like, God is patient, God is kind . . ."
"Wow! I always thought that love was something I could never understand."
I wasn't prepared for everything that the WORD would reveal to me. I felt as if I had just struck gold. Each morning has a new lesson. I'm sure that I will never be able to uncover all the wonders of God in my time. As far as an answer to my search for love, I would say that LOVE: is intended to be given, multiplied, then returned A TRUE GIFT.
