Just beautifull!!

This was absolutly Beautifull!
and so so true. Thank you for todays life lesson, of What love is.
I agree, whats important to the ones dear and close to our hearts, matters,and aqknowledging this is an act of love on our part, and can only bring in long term possitive effects.... now if we could remember this with our creator and put that into our focus what important to him Hashem, and if we put this on the top of our priority list everday, i'd say,this would be a great task ! thanks for sharing...Shalom!

love is

Love is patient, love is kind, it does not envy.it does not boast,it is not proud.It is not rude, it is not self seeking,it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always preserves. Love never fails. Pure action

Demonstrating Love

Well said, but I think it's really about demonstrating love rather than a definition of love.

your insight into the lover elaborates on our treating other as oneself in a way that I knew was truth, but had not conceived...articulated...

sweet and to the point of everything...your insight into the lover elaborates on our treating other as oneself in a way that I knew was truth, but had not conceived...articulated... amazing...I will send this sincere and beautiful film to many, Jewish and not so Jewish lovers and deservers of love... Thank you from the bottom of my heart ...

Simple and to the point! Great!

The above summary line says it all.
Patience, give and take and understanding in any relationship is part of the "what is important to you is important to me".

Love is...

A simplified answer for a complex emotion. I like the thought process, but I am not sure if I buy in 100%. This, I will have to think on.

Thank you for your thoughts.

Love & Conviction

Good point, Lori. What's important to me is what I do in my career and lifestyle. I understand that love comes in different contexts, where if it is a relationship in dating someone, then there is always going to be trial-and-error when determining whether he/she is the right person for you. If it is under marriage with children, then it is more obligatory to love, especially the children. As for what's important to me are my Jewish convictions to find the right Jewish counterpart when the time is right after getting settled into my career. For now, I am in my mid-20's, and I feel that age 30 is the reasonable minimum age to get married since people do or can grow wiser. Indeed, love must be a mutual connection of two who share the same or similar values, along with some different interests. Hence, I understand the importance of marrying Jewish, as opposed to that of intermarriage. What is important to me will be important to whatever I do in life for my career, love, and Jewish convictions.
