What is the Meaning of Love?

What is the meaning of love?
Think about it...
In the bible it says, "Greater love has no one than this, than
to lay down one's life for one's friend. ~John 15:13

Jesus died on the cross thinking about us. Knowing that we would
make mistakes.

My Grandparents sent this little story to us a while back ago...I'd like to share it with you.

Little things to put things in perspective...
After a forest fire in Yellowstone National Park, the forest
rangers began their trek up a mountain to assess the inferno's damage.
One ranger found a bird literally petrified in ashes, perched statuesque on
the ground at the Base of a tree. Somewhat sickened by the eerie sight, he knocked
over the Bird with a stick. When he gently struck it, three tiny chicks scurried from
under their dead mother's wings.

The loving mother, keenly aware of impending disaster, had carried her offspring to the
base of the tree and had gathered them under her wings, instinctively knowing that the toxic
smoke would rise. She could have flown to safety but had refused to abandon her babies.
Then the blaze had arrived and the heat had scorched her small body. The mother had
remained steadfast. She had been willing to die, so those under the cover of her
wings would live.
~Robert L. Durham~

~He cover you with his feathers, and under His wings you will find Refuge~
~Psalm 91:4~

...Now that's LOVE!!!
