Ben Johnson posted these on twitter. I am not sure where they came from but I like them!

Love is being unwilling to do what is wrong when you have been wronged but to look for concrete and specific ways to overcome evil with good

Love means being willing, when confronted by your spouse, to examine your heart rather than rising to your defense or shifting the focus

Love is a daily commitment to admit your sin, weakness, and failure and to resist the temptation to offer an excuse or shift the blame.

Love is the daily commitment to resist the needless moments of conflict that come from pointing out and responding to minor offenses.

Love is actively fighting the temptation to be critical and judgmental toward your spouse, while looking for ways to encourage and praise

Love is being willing to have your life complicated by the needs and struggles of your husband or wife without impatience or anger.
