My word for the new year is Love. Love defined by Webster is an intense feeling of deep affection. However, I have learned throughout my life that love is not a feeling at all. Instead, it is a choice. Jesus was the very picture of love. He showed His love through service and sacrifice. If we were to relate to others the way that He did, the world would be a much better place.
"Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God."
-- 1 John 4:7 

"Let all your things be done with charity."
-- 1 Corinthians 16:14 

" Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. "
-- John 15:13

"Love is aan unconditional commitment to an imperfect person. To love somebody isn't just a strong feeling. It is a decision, a judgement and a promise."
-- Unknown

"Love is a choice you make from moment to moment."
-- Barbara De Angelis

"Jesus is the greatest example of what it means to love others and not live a selfish life."
-- Joyce Mayer
