Unconditional love. what does this mean? When I google this term, idealistic Wikipedia comes up with this as its first sentence “Unconditional love is known as affection without any limitations”.

But I ask, is that all? only pertaining to affection? No. Yes, affection is part of it. Admiration, respect, trust, etc… it’s all there. But at the heart of the issue, it’s so much more. It’s hard for me to put this into words. I’m still learning what unconditional love looks like, and I truly fail at this type of love sometimes daily.

Some of you may have seen a lovely video floating around facebook called “The Story of Ian & Larissa”. I encourage you to take some time to soak in the beauty of this video. Our earthly unconditional love is so very different from heavenly love, but oh my, it’s still gorgeous when displayed by Ian and Larissa! I only pray Travis and I can continue to develop our love for one another, as well as developing our love for the children God has already planned for our family in such a way that God would smile upon us. And to think this type of love PALES in comparison to how our He loves us! A-MAZING!
