It’s neither related to anyone I've dated, nor to my friends... OK, actually, they have done really romantic things for me. But in comparison with the experience that I’m going to talk about, those are not very romantic. That person gave me his life, he gave up everything that he had in order to come to me, he worked hard and suffered for me. Now we are together all the time, wherever I am and alway. Oh, yes, and he has a big plan for me and my life. He promised that his love will endure forever and because he says it, I’m sure it is true.
So what did I get from here? I can’t give my life to everyone neither die for the whole world as He did. Maybe you realised while you were thinking your most romantic event, that the love is not linked to material things. The important thing is that person want to spend his/her time for you. Moreover, it doesn’t relate to interest. Sounds funny, but the best thing in this world is for free! Therefore, the best way to give your life to others is your presence and offered time. Because time is the glory that God gave to us and it’s the units of our life (days, months, years…), if we offer others our time, it’s almost giving them our life. ;)
My conclusion comes that the real romanticism is not the gift but the preparation time and the wholeheartedness behind it. Thus, the easy way to become romantic is just giving your time for others. I.e., maybe you can bake a cake for that person?
Have a blessed week! Easter is near! :P
