And the Greatest of These is Love

The days are getting notably longer and lighter. The trees are beginning to swell with new buds.  The promise of all things new again; fresh and starting over.  And love, as the saying goes, is in the air.  Spring, with its hopeful promise seems a fitting season for love.  We have all felt this hope of love and renewal in the springs of our lives.  And, being a florist in the week before we celebrate Valentines Day I thought I would share a few images of spring, along with some thoughts and a few of my favourite quotes on love.

Genuine love takes time to grow.  Love is a long road of learning the art of mutual sacrifice and submission to the ones you love.

Some of the greatest roadblocks to giving and receiving love are the barriers that we have built up out of selfishness, pride, fear of being hurt.


 

Love cleans the slate.  Love for one another has the power to overcome anything, anyone, anytime, anywhere; but it means learning to forgive.  


 
 

"Love is what carries you, for it is always there, even in the dark, or most in the dark, but shinning out at times like gold stitches in a piece of embroidery.”
~Wendell Berry”


Happy Valentines day everyone!
