With Valentines Day around the corner it seemed appropriate to begin our first Blog of this month with the opening lines of the Beatles hit song “All you need is LOVE.” February 9th marked the 50th anniversary of the Beatles first performance in the U.S. on the Ed Sullivan show. The Beatles were the masters of the short love song and penned other Love classics such as “All my Loving” and “She loves You .” (yeah,yeah,yeah)
Love is the most powerful force in the universe. Love (n) is defined as “an intense, affectionate concern for another person”. That noun can quickly turn into a verb, an action word, because Love makes us want to DO something to demonstrate that affection and concern.
We are motivated, driven, inspired and humbled by Love. The greatest sacrifices ever made throughout history are rooted in Love. We desperately look for ways to express love through art, music, poetry, movies, business, greeting cards, candy, flowers ,etc.
Love is what motivates people to choose to get married and vow to spend the rest of their lives together. It’s what inspires them to dream & build a life with and for each other and for the children they may have. It’s what motivates them to want to protect their hopes and dreams for the future.
And the most powerful financial tool ever created to help protect and carry out those hopes and dreams is Life Insurance.
*Life insurance can provide a lump sum of money to pay off a mortgage ~ or provide a fund to draw on for those who are renting so a family can afford to stay in their home.
*Life Insurance can pay off all credit cards and loans and provide funds for college education or other goals.
*Life insurance can provide a family with a secure monthly income for 10 years or more depending on children’s ages.
Buying Life insurance is something you are motivated, inspired or driven to do because you LOVE somebody. You buy it because no matter what happens you want the people you love to be taken care of financially.
Life insurance has sometimes been described as a love letter. Because a person who buys life insurance makes a voluntary choice to fill out an application and name beneficiaries who will receive funds to remain financially secure and complete the hopes and dreams that have been planned if death should occur prematurely.
Life Insurance gives you an opportunity to do one of the greatest things you’ll ever do for your family ~ Insure Your Love.
These words from one of the Beatles most beautiful Love songs sums it up:
“As I write this letter, send my Love to You
Remember that I’ll always be in Love with You.
Treasure these few words, till we’re together
Keep ALL my Love forever.
P.S. I Love You…You, You You.”
We can help you Insure Your Love. February is the perfect month to do that. Love is a verb.
