talk about love

it's friday time, i really enjoyed myself tonight spending it off with john at a jazz concert. it was the internationally known "tuck & patti" which had stirred up my long drained hunger for jazz. overnight, it seems to be alive all over again. somehow i felt that tonight was well spent around the topic about LOVE. the 2 hr of concert at UCC was spent dwelling in the realm of love, most of their songs sounds quite 'christiany' i feel...everynow and then, i could gathers bits and pieces of heaven, angels, love, perservance, faithfulness etc... i can't say for sure that these 2 are christians or not but i do find there lyrics up lifting somewhat in this love craving world...

somehow i feel modern people like us had did alot of injustice to the language of LOVE. I have seen and heard more stories of people abusing each other in the name of love, using it to steal, kill & destroy. using it like a bait to fish a prize, using it to exchange of higher demands of lifestyles and personal craving, using this to create hurt and deeper hurt, using it blackmail or hi-jet of someones' best interests in life...what had us. YOU, ME & EVERYONE WHO IS READING THIS!!! what had you been reducing LOVE to? it is so cheap and a rag in the pig's swine... stinking rich! how foul ! how foul !

I cannot imagine that this world will go far or even further if we choose to behave like a reckless person. only know how to live for oursleves, but nothing else. but i will remind myself that the world is round, whatever goes around will come around. all of us will reap what we sow... slowly but surely, although i had to say. and i am learning to say sorry.

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

I Corinthians 13:5-8
