How do you love?

Why do you do the things you do for others? Do you do so because you think God is keeping score? Or maybe you are? Or do you do what you do out of devotion? This morning I stumbled upon a beautiful picture of love and devotion. It was a video of a husband and wife who clearly love one another. The wife enjoyed demonstrating her love for her husband in the simple tasks of life: making his favorite omelet or making sure his clothes are crisp and clean.
