Love … and life

A favourite written piece about love…. have I mentioned how much I love words?

Growing up I also dreamed about falling in love with a Prince and living happily ever after in a castle surrounded by water… Bliss.  Well, in the real world I actually have my own Prince, he is amazing, very caring and passionate about life.  We don’t have our castle and mout yet but we will one day soon.  We have been together for 10 years now and many more to come…. exciting!

Now, some wise words on love from my mum – Love starts by loving yourself – if you don’t love yourself you can’t love anyone else.  Readers please take my mothers advice

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. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me. Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

1 Corinthians 13 NIV Version
