The love chapter~

"Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity," ( love) "I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.

And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.

And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.

Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,

Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;

Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;

Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.

Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.

For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.

But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.

When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.

For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.
Here's hoping you all had a love-filled day, whether it was love shown to your spouse/spouse-to-be or by your family or a friend...for after all, there are many different kinds of love!

I read the following quote a couple days ago in the book, "Captivating" and thought I'd share it here.

"I will find you. No matter how long it takes, no matter how far--I will find you!"

.......said by Nathaniel to Cora in "The Last of the Mohicans"--which I'd never heard of before this........

As many other young women do, I'm sure, I pray for my man every night----to be growing in the Lord daily; to be a shining example to others by his integrity; to have safety as he goes about his work; to be preparing a home for us; and, yes of course, to find me----soon. :)
May you be blessed as you show love to those around you!
