And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

my favorite verse. 
i was smiling while typing this post. of course when it comes to love, we all will be smiling. i strongly believe that everyone love to be loved. me too... i really hopes all the people that i love, loves me as well. 
i absolutely agree with this word. 
love is the greatest among all.
even if you have faith and hope but lack of love, it means nothing. 
in life, we must love. not only for your lovers but also for your family, your friends and your country (semangat patriotik kenen hehe). 

there is one story i want to share. 
well, i am pretty sure you guys have heard it many times right?

A woman came out of her house and saw 3 old men with long white 
beard sitting in her frontyard. She did not recognize them. 
She said "I don't think I know you, but you must be hungry. 
Please come in and have something to eat." 

"Is the man of the house home?", they asked. 

"No", she replied. "He's out." 

"Then we cannot come in", they replied. 

In the evening when her husband came in
she told him what had happened. 

"Go tell them I am home and invite them in!" 

The woman went out and invited the men in. 

"We do not go into a House together," they replied. 

"Why is that?" she asked. 

One of the old men explained: "His name is Wealth," he said pointing 
to one of his friends, and said pointing to another one, "He is Success, 
and I am Love." Then he added, "Now go in and discuss with your 
husband which one of us you want in your home." 

The woman went in and told her husband what was said. Her husband 
was overjoyed. "How nice!!", he said. "Since that is the case, let us 
invite Wealth. Let him come and fill our home with wealth!" 

His wife disagreed. "My dear, why don't we invite Success?" 
Their daughter-in-law was listening from the other corner of the house. 
She jumped in with her own suggestion: "Would it not be better to 
invite Love? Our home will then be filled with love!" 

"Let us heed our daughter-in-law's advice," 
said the husband to his wife. 

"Go out and invite Love to be our guest." 

The woman went out and asked the 3 old men, 
"Which one of you is Love? Please come in and be our guest." 

Love got up and started walking toward the house. The other 2 also 
got up and followed him. Surprised, the lady asked Wealth and Success: 
"I only invited Love, Why are you coming in?" 

The old men replied together: "If you had invited Wealth or Success, 
the other two of us would've stayed out, but since you invited Love, 
wherever He goes, we go with him. 
Wherever there is Love, there is also Wealth and Success!

so, why do LOVE is important again?? well, the story tells itself! :)
so long and good night..

too much X and O.
