“Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.”
1 Corinthians 13:7 ESV
One meaning of smitten is an intense love for someone that exceeds all boundaries. In the most positive sense, it exemplifies the true meaning of loving with all your heart and all your soul and all your mind. It is absolutely unconditional, requiring nothing, but giving everything. As a hopeful romantic, I still believe it exists and should be the ultimate goal. But, it is not flesh and bones; it is spirit and commitment. For feelings alone will always fade, but true love endures.
