Love is. . .

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.
As I was reading this scripture this morning, it really spoke to my heart. I hope it will speak to yours as well. Every time I read this scripture, I am reminded how I need to read it more often as it truly does tell us so clearly what love is all about.
Enjoy your week ahead, dear friends. The holiday where we celebrate love for others will soon be here. It is one of my very favorites. Love and blessings to you!
