Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, 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 alway hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.
1 Corinthians 13: 4-8
This is me with my youngest in 2005
I remember the first time I ever heard this passage and it was so powerful to me. I was a new mom sitting holding my baby when a speaker was reading it. As a parent looking at my baby I thought this is what true love is suppose to look like. I can’t imagine loving something more than I love my children but God’s love for us is completely perfect.
