Love is.....


Today, I'm wearing purple to spread the word that abuse is not love! October is domestic voilence awareness month. Today I wear purple in support of those affected. I've seen victims stay because they thought the abuse was love, I've heard the stories and seen the scars. I've seen the affects that verbal, physical and emotional abuse can have. Domestic violence is serious and it is not OK. If you are being abused I urge you to get out. You are worth so much more and don't deserve what's happening to you! It's not your fault.

Today, I smile for the victims who walked away from their abusers. I smile believing that someone that may be affected will find the strength to ask for help. One of my favorite bible verses is 1 Corinthians chapter 13, this chapter describes to us what true love is, I urge you to love and find love that mirrors the love God has for us. 

The scripture tells us:
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails.

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
1 in 3 families are affected by domestic violence. Domestic violence is a pattern of abusive behaviors — physical, sexual, psychological, and economic coercion — used by one intimate partner against another (adult or adolescent) to gain, maintain, or regain power and control in the relationship. Batterers use of a range of tactics to frighten, terrorize, manipulate, hurt, humiliate, blame, often injure, and sometimes kill a current or former intimate partner.
If you are in danger, please call 911, your local hotline, or (in the U.S.) the National Domestic Violence Hotline: (800) 799-7233 or TTY (800) 787-3224.





I pray that your life will be saved, I pray that you will be able to stand tall and know that you are deserving of real love.
