Love Is...

This is a re-post from last year's Valentine's post.  It is one of my favorites and worth a second glance :-)

I have decided to make a St. Valentine's Day post a few days early.  Today is the 15th anniversary of my Mom's death and the day before Ash Wednesday.  Each year this time of year reminds me of the important things I have been blessed with in my life.  I am now at a point in life where I can think of my Mom today with more thoughts of happiness, thankfulness and joy than of sadness.  I am a better person {and mother} because of her and for that I am thankful. 

I have decided that this month I am going to memorize 1 Corinthians 13:1-13.

I've always loved that particular scripture and it was part of our wedding too.

This is why I like it best...

Love is patient and kind; 

love is not jealous or boastful;


 it is not arrogant or rude.  

Love does not insist on its own way;
it is not irritable or resentful; 

 it does not rejoice at wrong, but rejoices in the right. 

Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

  Love never ends.
