To Love

"This love of which I speak is slow to lose patience
- it looks for a way of being constructive.
Love is not possessive.
Love is not anxious to impress
nor does it cherish inflated ideas of its own ideas.
Love has good manners
and does not pursue selfish advantage.
Love is not touchy.
Love does not keep account of evil
or gloat over the wickedness of other people.
On the contrary, it is glad with all good men when truth prevails.
Love knows no limits to its endurance,
no end to its trust, no fading of its hope; 
it can outlast anything. It is, in fact,
the one thing that stands when all else has fallen.”
Elisabeth Elliot, Let Me Be a Woman

Thank you Elisabeth. What a different way to say those familiar 1st Cor. 13 verses. Makes me think.

You are loved with a perfect and everlasting love so stay happy!
