What does love look like?

Hands
Hands

What does love look like?  It has the hands to help others.  It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy.  It has eyes to see misery and want.  It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men.  That is what love looks like.

~ St. Augustine

Foot long
Foot long

I think love also has the hands to play and create.  The feet to hasten us towards those we love.  The eyes to see joy.  And the ears to hear laughter and music.

    1. Thank you, Karma. 🙂 These were easy. My granddaughters and their friends were playing with “washable” paints in the driveway, making hand prints and footprints. Apparently the paints did not wash away which provided me the opportunity to take some photos of them. It’s a black, textured driveway and the paints were bright so I didn’t feel the need to tweak or fool with the photos other than to resize and sharpen a bit.
