What is Love? *****, according to the Holy Bible, is patient and kind. Love does not envy or boast and is not proud. Love never fails (NIV 811). Th***** simple term for the most powerful emotion in ***** world is simply not enough. Love is all these things, it has the ability to empower and increase confidence, ***** lighten a mood or make the ***** seem a better pl*****ce. Yet it also has the abil*****y to always makes us feel **********, like a newborn child or tot*****lly incapable of doing the most simplest of tasks.

*****erefore, what ***** this intangible emotion and power that can leave us without any control over ourselves and increases our vulnerability to being hurt?

To hear y***** lover's voice even after a few minutes of silence is to some like the soft music of angels.
