Love Is

I would like to dedicate today's post to my amazing husband of almost 30 years. We were high school sweethearts and our journey together has been filled with mountaintops and valleys. Even though I have been disabled for over a decade he has remained steadfast and ever loving to me.  Through it all he has shown me the love God speaks of in these scriptures. I love you Jeff!

"Love never gives up." ...even during times of darkest trial
"Love cares more for others than for self." ...even when it means changing plans to care for his sick spouse
"Love doesn’t want what it doesn’t have."  ...even when that means giving up his dreams
"Love doesn’t strut, Doesn’t have a swelled head," ...even when he could brag at his wife's expense
"Doesn’t force itself on others," ...even when that means dying to self
"Isn’t always 'me first,' " ...even when he deserves to be first
"Doesn’t fly off the handle," ...even when his wife deserves his anger
"Doesn’t keep score of the sins of others," ...even when it would be so easy to do so
"Doesn’t revel when others grovel," ...even if he was right from the start
"Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth," ...because he knows the difference between God's truth and the enemies lies
"Puts up with anything," ...because he knows God has done it for him
"Trusts God always," ...because God has always proven His faithfulness
"Always looks for the best," ...because he truly desires the best for his family
"Never looks back," ...because he has hope in the future
"But keeps going to the end." ...because he loves his wife with the love that God has for His Church

"Love never dies. Inspired speech will be over some day; praying in tongues will end; understanding will reach its limit. We know only a portion of the truth, and what we say about God is always incomplete. But when the Complete arrives, our incompletes will be canceled." 1 Corinthians 13 The Message
