So I Think I Can Dance

I'm not normally home on Wednesday nights. But for once I don't have to work tonight but sadly I'm sick. So as I'm flipping through the channels, besides noticing that there isn't anything on TV so I really haven't been missing anything while I've been at work, I also see MY DANCE TEACHERS. I was so excited to see Tony and Melanie, my latin dance instructors. Tony choreographed one of the dances for the couples and Melanie acted as his assistant BUT one of the finalists got sick so Melanie actually had to fill in. Tony and Melanie are both champion ballroom dancers. So given that I have incredible instructors I now KNOW that I can dance. ;-P

Teach Me How To Love

How do you define love? If you look the word up in the dictionary there is over 25 different explanations for it. I don't think there is one right or wrong definition. The dictionary just proves that love is defined and applied differently based on the individual. Whenever I question what love is or need to be reminded of the kind of love I want to give and receive I turn to my faith.

According to 1 Corinthians 13:1-8 and 13:
"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 perseveres. Love never fails.And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love."

To me, this is the definition of a perfect love. I am not perfect so I do not seek perfection I just strive to be better.
