Advent: Love

When I sat down to start explaining what Love means to me I thought, this will be easy.  After I started, it did not turn out to be so easy.  If I were in a conversation with someone and they asked me what is love, I felt confident I could explain but then I realized Love is such a complex emotion that it confuses many.  Let’s not get confused with the feeling of Love which Scientists claim involve dopamine, serotonin and other chemical reactions within our body.  This is what I refer to as physical love.
