Is there any such thing as a recipe for love? I dunno, but maybe this comes close:

recipe for love

Love isn’t just a feeling, it’s something that you *do,* right? Interestingly, the verb-love often leads to or enhances the noun-love.

So…define “love.” Aside from feeling all warm & fuzzy, (and aside from a little sheet music,) what is it, how do you do it?

I think Ephesians 4 is a good place to start. The theme of chapter four is unity, love for each other, taking off the bad and putting on the good. It’s all summed up in the last two verses. Let go of the anger, the bitterness, and the negativity. Put it away from you and don’t let it be a part of you. Instead, be kind, compassionate, and forgiving. In this way, we love.

Hey, y’all! I'm Amber, and I wear many hats: Pastor's wife, marriage advocate, eclectic homeschooler, mother of three, and domestically challenged homemaker--lovin’ life and livin’ deep in the heart of Texas.
I love to write and I hope to use that wisely, to encourage others, and for God’s glory. I seek purpose in the mundane. I want my kids to see God’s fingerprints throughout all of creation, learning, and life. As I teach our children, God is teaching me through this homeschool journey, too. I love Jesus, family, coffee, words, and the color teal.
