[un]selfish love.

 “To love a person is to learn the song that is in their heart and sing it to them when they have forgotten.” – Thomas Chandler 
I've been brewing about love lately.  Not the romantic Byron kind, or the John Cusack Serendipity kind but a different kind-
The kind that changes lives.
The kind of love that changed my life.
A deep, unchanging, unselfish love.  One that words can neither contain nor explain.

The love that says bring all of your flaws and faults and memories.  Bring your biggest dreams and buried insecurities and deep-rooted questions about life.  Bring everything you are and everything you've learned and everything you've ever been told about love.  See if any love story you've ever been told goes like this-
"Greater love has no one than this- that someone lay down his life for his friends." -John 15:13
Sacrifice.  Unselfishness.  Servitude.
In these words I find a love that doesn't require us to have everything together-
simply a willingness to give it all away.
