Corinthinans 13

It is amazing through out time that some things never change. Love, true love in its most glorious state is wonderful and beautiful and uncomplicated. It is intriguing how words can retain their value and stimulate as a reminder of our all that we are truly capable of . The Corinthinian " Love is patient , love is kind and is not jealous, does not brag and is not arrogant, why is it that we needed reminded of the very gift of life? The gift which is concieved in love.

1 Corinthians 13

" If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but do not have love, I have become a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. And if I give all my possessions to feed the poor, and if I surrender my body to be burned, but do not have love, it profits me nothing. Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails; but if there are gifts of prophecy, they will be done away; if there are tongues, they will cease; if there is knowledge, it will be done away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part; but when the perfect comes, the partial will be done away. When I was a child, I used to speak like a child, think like a child, reason like a child; when I became a man, I did away with childish things. For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face; now I know in part, but then I will know fully just as I also have been fully known. But now faith, hope, love, abide these three; but the greatest of these is love."
In my gratitude I rejoice not in what I don't have,but I bask in the glory of what I do. When all that surrounds drapes in darkness, I reach out to feel your love holding me tight. The only gift which one needs to see the beauty in the world is love .
