What is Love? Series ~ Part 3
“For the month of February, every Sunday, I wanted to do a little ‘What is Love’ series; a collection of random stories and videos that exhibit love and inspire us to bring more love into our lives. Yes, we can BRING more love into our lives. We don’t need anyone else to do it for us. Love is there, waiting to be had.
What is love? Love is a feeling of deep devotion, concern, and affection. It’s expressed and felt in many different ways. I hope these favorite stories and videos that I found, will help convey the beauty of love, inspire you, and bring a little more light into your life. Enjoy!”
Story #7 – Brandon, Sharing the Light
When choosing the stories I want to share each week, I read and watch several, just waiting for the one that will give me goosebumps. There’s something about this sweet young man, Brandon. He radiates the light of Christ, is a fantastic example, and shares insights that are so inspirational.
Although, not quite a story-story, I LOVED this blog post by Seth Smith, about his decision to get married and what his father taught him. His insights about marriage really help to answer the question, ‘what is love?’

Now before you start making assumptions, keep reading.
I met my wife in high school when we were 15 years old. We were friends for ten years until…until we decided no longer wanted to be just friends. 🙂 I strongly recommend that best friends fall in love. Good times will be had by all.
Nevertheless, falling in love with my best friend did not prevent me from having certain fears and anxieties about getting married. The nearer Kim and I approached the decision to marry, the more I was filled with a paralyzing fear. Was I ready? Was I making the right choice? Was Kim the right person to marry? Would she make me happy?
Then, one fateful night, I shared these thoughts and concerns with my dad.

Story #9 – You Are My Sunshine
I first read about this story in the Deseret News, a Utah newspaper. Oh my dear, it’s so sweet. After 66 years of marriage, James and Colleen, have still got it going on. This simple moment caught on video reflects years and years of patience, forgiveness, service, kindness, communication and love.
