stop & take a deep breath, oh ye wearied receiver of red rose & diamond advertising...one honest expression of true charitable love is worth more than a million hallmark sentiments mass printed on recycled paper.now, i have nothing against things that remind us to show the love, as this holiday does. being what we are, we do need reminders from time to time. & we can often forget exactly what love is...as i thought about this for most of the day, my thoughts kept coming back to this..."love is patient, love is kind. love is not jealous, it does not put on airs, it is not snobbish. love is never rude, it is not self seeking, it is not prone to anger; neither does it brood over injuries. love does not rejoice in what is wrong but rejoices with the truth. there is no limit to love's forebearance, to its trust, its hope, its power to endure. love never fails." (1Cor. 13:4-8)that is the love i aspire to & hope for.
for quite some time i have been enjoying bleeding espresso's love thursdays' posts & today i wanted to pass some link-love to the shutter sisters who keep this delightful weekly event up & running. how cool is that?!...St. Valentine's Day falls on love thursday!
may your love shine through today & everyday!!
