When Heaven Weeps: Newly Repackaged Novel from The Martyr's Song Series (Martyr's Song)
By Ted Dekker
Most people think that Love is just a feeling, but really the feeling is just the perk. Love is a choice. It doesn't come easy; you have to work for it. The feelings may not always be there, but then again, love isn't exactly a feeling, now is it?
When you chose to love someone, you are making a commitment that should not be taken lightly. If you are choosing to love someone, you need to stick to with it, even through the hard times.(and they do get hard)
Love is about giving and taking. Both contribute to the relationship. Sharing each others burdens and joys, even when you don't feel like it ( feelings should not be the focus!). It's working to better and fulfill the other person, rather than just get what you want.
I'm not trying to say that if you have the feelings or whatever that its not real. But think about it: Most people today think that if they don't feel it all the time then they don't love eachother anymore.(and then there are the extremely shallow people who just "play the game" and go through the motions and say the words to get what they want, but never mean them; and if you are one of those people, I hate you.)
Love is awesome.But like I said, It's not easy;
It wouldn't be worth as much if it was as easy as just a feeling.
