For Valentines

Standard

Love is willing to hang in there for the long haul;

Love is always ready to do something for someone else;


Love does not begrudge others their success;

nor flaunt its own.


Love is not arrogant or rude, it doesn’t force its own agendas and trample others down in the process.


Love does not spit the dummy over every little thing or hold grudges and dream of revenge.


Love takes no pleasure in dishonesty, however daring; but it is the first to celebrate truth and integrity.


Love holds firm under pressure, keeps believing the best of others, maintains its hope when all seems lost, and toughs it out, no matter what.



Love is forever!

From 1 Corinthians 13 (Laugh Bird Liturgical Resources paraphrase)
