What's love got to do with it.

I guess that it's acceptable to be able to write about love during February. 
I was at ward temple night tonight and sitting there I was thinking about love. Love is an interesting thing. If you've ever seen sword in the stone (and if you haven't, it's hilarious) Arthur is taking lessons with Merlin about magic, life, and the world around him. They have a run in with a couple of squirrels and they have been learning about gravity. At the end Arthur comes to realize that Love is the greatest power in the universe, even greater than gravity. 
I think that is phenomenal!
Loving the Lord.
That is a phrase that appears all over the scriptures. 
What does it mean though?
When you truly love the Lord anything that you would do would build Him up. Others would want to know Him because they know you. You serve Him, and do your very best while serving Him. Nothing is too hard, inconvenient, or impossible. We strive to be like Him in all that we do. In short true worship is emulation.
There are only two things that we are to love with all our heart might mind and strength. God, and your wife. 
That says something about the treatment of your wife. 
Love is something that we cannot possess. It is something that possesses us. It is something that overcomes us with an indescribable urge to do and be better. It is not the person that makes you want to be a better person. Being around that person makes you want to be a better person because you see a better way of living life. You see new possibilities that help you to understand your own divine nature. 
Love is the most powerful force in the universe.
Even more powerful than Gravity.
