“Keep working on love”

I recently attended a birthday party and met a vivacious young lady who had a very intriguing arm tattoo that read “Keep working on love.” I felt a little embarrassed by asking to snap a quick picture of her tattoo, but those four words really struck a chord with me…and she was more than happy to oblige.

In all facets of everyday relationships, whether they be with a significant other, with parents, siblings or friends, and even a higher power, they all require work to continue the loving bond and connection. This work entails action on our part. Sometimes this may be a small struggle, but totally worth the effort. We can all say the words “I love you” but are we actually showing it?

As we enter this Easter weekend, you will be surrounded by family and good friends. Whether it be a big or small gesture, I encourage you to act on love…

Enjoy your weekend!

    I definitely agree love is something you have to keep working on. Whether it be a person, place or thing. This was quoted during my wedding ceremony and something that I still hold true dearly…
    1 Corinthians 13:4-8
     4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

     8 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.

    Happy to see this. I have a tattoo with the same words: Keep working on love.
    The reaction of my 8 year old student, to my tattoo, inspired me to write a small blog post 🙂
