Fans Overjoyed by Audrey Roloff's Heartfelt Message

She doesn't get this deep very often.

Audrey Roloff took a break from posting adorable photos of Ember to deliver a powerful note on love.

The Little People, Big World star shared a picture of her and Jeremy together, the two smiling outside with his arm wrapped around her.

The accompanying question started off with a question, asking if people have "lost grip" on what the true definition of love is.

Love. Have we lost grip on what it really is? It’s so commonly mistaken for tolerance, or watered down to a feeling or desire. We are so quick to say we love this and love that... but have we cheapened the meaning? Sure, I “love” Christmas and “love” campfires, but then I also love Jeremy... So how do we reconcile this? We must reclaim the definition of love. True love is so much more than desire for something or someone. It’s patient, kind, compassionate, selfless, fervent, unconditional, honest, encouraging, enduring, and full of grace and truth. Love is not a feeling; it’s a sacrifice, a commitment, daily choice - a verb. I love Timothy Keller’s words, “In any relationship, there will be frightening spells in which your feelings of love dry up. And when that happens, you must remember that the essence of marriage is that it is a covenant, a commitment, a promise of future love. So what do you do? You DO THE ACTS OF LOVE, despite your lack of feeling. You may not feel tender, sympathetic, and eager to please, but in your actions you must BE tender, understanding, forgiving and helpful. And, if you do that, as time goes on you will not only get through the dry spells, but they will become less frequent and deep, and you will become more constant in your feelings. This is what can happen if you decide to love.” LOVE IS A VERB. Grab one of our “love is a verb” swestshirts for you and your hubby or wife.

"It’s so commonly mistaken for tolerance, or watered down to a feeling or desire. We are so quick to say we love this and love that... but have we cheapened the meaning?"

She goes on to describe the things she "loves," including "Christmas," "campfires," and "Jeremy," but that still doesn't help to clarify the true definition behind what it means to love someone or something.

"True love is so much more than desire for something or someone," Audrey wrote.

"It's patient, kind, compassionate, selfless, fervent, unconditional, honest, encouraging, enduring, and full of grace and truth. Love is not a feeling; it’s a sacrifice, a commitment, daily choice - a verb."

Audrey ends her message by quoting a favorite passage by Timothy Keller, author and founding pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church.

"In any relationship, there will be frightening spells in which your feelings of love dry up. And when that happens, you must remember that the essence of marriage is that it is a covenant, a commitment, a promise of future love. So what do you do? You DO THE ACTS OF LOVE, despite your lack of feeling," the quote reads.

"You may not feel tender, sympathetic, and eager to please, but in your actions you must BE tender, understanding, forgiving and helpful. And, if you do that, as time goes on you will not only get through the dry spells, but they will become less frequent and deep, and you will become more constant in your feelings. This is what can happen if you decide to love.”

Fans were quick to comment on Audrey's post, noting how much it resonated with them after reading.

"I find so much encouragement in this even as a single person to strive to think about love more in this way and to pray for my future marriage to be filled with the verb of love," one person wrote, with another saying the quote is "such a great reminder."

Someone else described the post as "beautiful," filled with "so much truth" in it.

Many others said her post was "just what they needed to read," tossing around hearts, smiles, and other various emojis.

It's clear she should do these more often!
