What Does Love Mean?: Part Four

Written by Braiden Rex-Johnson on February 13, 2012

In our February 2 blog post, we started a list of more than 20 ways in which young children discuss the meaning of love. Here is our final installment, numbers 16 through 21.

16. ‘Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone all day.’ Mary Ann – age 4

17. ‘I know my older sister loves me because she gives me all her old clothes and has to go out and buy new ones.’ Lauren – age 4

18. ‘When you love somebody , your eyelashes go up and down and little stars come out of you.’ (what an image) Karen – age 7

19. ‘Love is when Mommy sees Daddy on the toilet and she doesn’t think it’s gross..’ Mark – age 6

20. ‘You really shouldn’t say ‘I love you’ unless you mean it. But if you mean it , you should say it a lot. People forget.’ Jessica – age 8

21. And the final one. The winner was a four-year -old child whose next door neighbor was an elderly gentleman who had recently lost his wife.¬†Upon seeing the man cry , the little boy went into the old gentleman’s yard , climbed onto his lap , and just sat there. When his Mother asked what he had said to the neighbor , the little boy said , ‘Nothing , I just helped him cry’ When there is nothing left but God , that is when you find out that God is all you need. Take 60 seconds and give this a shot! All you do is simply say the following small prayer for the person who sent you this.

Heavenly Father , please bless all my friends in whatever it is that You know they may be needing this day! And may their life be full of Your peace , prosperity and power as he/she seeks to have a closer relationship with You. Amen . ork in your life. P. S. Five is good , but more is better.. God Bless You!
