What is Love?

“Love is like oxygen. Love is a many splendored thing. Love lifts us up where we belong. All you need is love!”

-Christian, Moulin Rouge

A few days ago a friend asked me how I would describe love.

That’s a really tough question. I haven’t answered him yet because I’m just not sure what to say. Honestly I don’t think you really can put it into words but….I’ll try. Love means something different to everyone. To some it’s lust and sex, to others, walking through the park at 87 with someone you’ve been with your whole life. The word itself is definitely underestimated and overused. For example, I love caramel macchiatos, or I love my iPod. If you really think about it, it just doesn’t make sense. I guess to me, love is more than a feeling. There’s more to it than that ache deep within you, more than your heart stopping momentarily. To me love is something much much more. Love is dying ((on the cross)) for someone who might decide to turn their back on you. Love is unconditional, everlasting, and unfathomable. Love here on earth isn’t even a teensy glimpse of the great depths that the love Christ has for us is. Love is indescribable.

Ronni just came into my room with mascara around her eyes, eyeliner across her nose and eyebrows, and a light pink lipgloss smeared across her lips…and everything else. She wanted to be “pitty yike bekah”.

Oh boy.

By the way… she IS fed. Honestly. She just is very boney.

Ok… now I don’t have a daughter, but I do have 3 younger sisters. I hear parents complaining about the media all the time but how many actually do anything about it? Now, I completely agree with them that our perception of beauty is sickeningly twisted but buying them Barbies and fake make-up kits isn’t helping all that much ((even though i have to admit, when i was younger i loved those too)) . Did you know that if Barbie were a real person, she would be 7 feet tall with a shoe size of about… a 4 or 5? Besides that, she would have a freakishly long neck and large head.

I have battles with my 3 grade sister all the time. She thinks that to be pretty she has to lose a ton of weight, dance like Shakira, wear skin-tight clothes, and pile on layers of makeup. She has “pampering days” where she gives herself a whole spa treatment so that she’ll be more pretty when she goes to school so that some boy will think she’s gorgeous and they’ll live happily ever after. She’s in 3RD GRADE!

Seriously, something is not right with this. Why are people starving themselves to be more “beautiful”, when people in other countries are starving to death?

Thing won’t change until we change them.
