Love…


flower-2Love is patient, love is kind.

It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.

It does not dishonor others, 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.

It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

1 Corinthians 13:4-7

      Thank you for your kind comments Liz… I truly believe you will find such love.
      Here is the thing… as we humans are imperfect works in-progress, it is highly unlikely we will stumble across a “perfect love” as expressed on this post and… even if such was to happen, that we would have the discernment and presence of mind to recognize it as such and reach for it.
      I believe such perfect love exists only as the foundation of our creator’s heart and His wish for us all… but practically – for us humans – it is something that has to be worked-on, developed, encouraged and sustained jointly within a willing relationship and bit by bit.
      It is hard work to achieve and requires an open mind and heart and the joint will of the individuals in the relationship.
      However, THIS IS what we are all created to successfully achieve – our JOY – if we let it.
      w/Love… JP

        I am not afraid of hard work if it is something I believe in…and my faith has shown me to be relentless in following my path even if it sometimes seems impossible …I want to be with someone who feels the same way…and I think I have found him if we both give each other a chance.
