All you need is lvoe

These 4 inch letters were supposed to spell a word that went along with the other home decor signs like LIVE, LAUGH, HOME and WELCOME.

It is completely understandable that someone in China did not recognize the misspelling. I have worked stocking shelves, so I get why a stocker in Florida would not have noticed. The really funny thing is that when Kirstie tried to buy it at a discount, the manager offered 10% off. At that point it was the principle of the thing--for her and him--and it went back to live on the store shelf. Someone else will get this really good deal. We went home, singing in the car, "All you need is lu-voe...all you need is lu-voe...all you need is lu-voe, is all you need!" (Don't sing it out loud, it will get in your brain and then you can't get it out).

Love is misspelled across our land, too, on the billboard of our common existence. I--we--can be so unloving:

"Love is patient,
love is kind.
It does not envy,
it does not boast,
it is not proud.

It is not rude,
it is not self-seeking,
it is not easily angered,
it keeps no record of wrongs.

Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Love never fails."
(1 Corinthians 13:4-8)
