Love is not instant...

Hi Bloggeritas!  In our instant, right now, on demand, gotta have it now society we are so busy that we over look things at times...ney...a LOT of the time.  Folks are so preoccupied with planning a dream wedding that they don't focus on having a dream marriage!  People are so worried about being fashion forward that they never pay kindness forward.  It's crazy.  It's too much. 

I'm not a religious person but, there is good in almost every religious text there is and one Bible verse stuck in my head when I got ready to make this card...1 Corinthians 13:4  "Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres."

Even if that were not from a religious text, it is a beautiful way to clearly articulate just what love is and isn't.

Love isn't instant (although there can be love at first sight), it isn't microwavable and it certainly can be bought, sold or stolen.  I think if we just remember that...a lot of our societal ills will be remedied. of my soapbox and on to the card:

Thanks for stopping by and reading my rant (and checking out the card too)!

Enjoy your rants and this one in particular. Love is also work, but it's definitely worth the effort. :)

Great card - love the clean and simple design with just the right pop of color.

Keep doing you!
