And the greatest of these is Love

Good Morning, Dear Friends and Prayer Partners! This is the day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it! Happy wet Valentine's Day! As I type this, rain is dripping down from my roof, after a short shower, but since we need the rain, I am happy for it. A good day to reflect on our blessings and the love of friends and family. My seventeen year old grandson's birthday is today. What a special day!

Unfortunately, he is in TN, so I cannot bake a cake for him, but his mom probably will.
My cleaning lady friends came yesterday, and we had a good time catching up. They know all the eating places around, since they have to stop and eat during their day of cleaning houses, so I hear of lots of places I would not know of otherwise. God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

1 Corinthians 13:4
Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful
or proud or rude. Love does not demand its own way.
Love is not irritable, and it keeps no record of when it
has been wronged. It is never glad about injustice, but
rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives
up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures 
through every circumstance. 

Love will last forever, but prophecy and speaking in 
unknown languages and special knowledge will all
disappear. Now we know only a little, and even the gift
of prophecy reveals little. But when the end comes, these
special gifts will all disappear.

It's like this: when I was a child I spoke and thought and
reasoned as a child does, but when I grew up, I put away
childish things. Now we see things imperfectly  as  in a poor
mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity.
All that I know now is imperfect and incomplete, but then
 I will know everything completely, just as God knows me now.

There are three things that will endure--faith, hope and love--and 
the greatest of these is Love.

I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!

Love and hugs,
