True Love...


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.

Love always protects, always trusts,
always hopes, always perseveres.

Love bears all things, believes all things,
hopes all things, endures all things.
Love never ends.

1 Corinthians 13 : 4 - 8 

Here are a few things I learned about love:

1. Love never fails...
2.  Love means being an example, not a critic
3. Love means being the change you would like to see in others
4. If someone says you hurt their feelings, apologize...even if you don't think you did anything wrong.
5. Plant good seeds, even when the situation is ugly.
6. Guarding your heart does not mean tearing up someone else's.
7. When things go wrong, realize there is a real enemy at work, and it's not the other person
8. Don't attack someone's character without first taking a good look at your own.
9. Your words can bring life, or death...choose wisely
10. Realize that God loves everyone else as much as He loves you.

Enjoy this beautiful day my dear friends, and all the goodness and joy that it brings!  My husband, Sean, is taking the girls and I out to dinner tonight. He proposed to me 18 years ago today so we always celebrate as a family, since it sort of represents the beginning of our family. I can't wait!

Look for my announcement of our One World One Heart winners at Noon EST.

Have a LOVE-ly day!! XOXO
