Happy February everybody! I do love February, actually the start of a new month, any month! Here we are headed directly into the month in which we celebrate love. Ahhhh, love! Let's all breathe deeply, in and out, slowly, reverently, and think about those we love and take time this month to celebrate them somehow. Maybe it's a nice gesture towards them, a gift, a love note, spending time together if possible, a phone call if you can't spend time together, and last but not least pray for them.
Here's my favorite Bible passage and guess what? It's about love. It's a good reminder of what love actually is, and isn't.
Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away. When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known. And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love. I Cor 13:4-13
For those of you who I know personally I LOVE you! And the above message is for you!
