I know what I want it to look like and this is it:
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 always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.
------- 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8
When I measure up love next to these words, I don't love even though I want to in my heart. So in 2013 I am focusing on this verse for myself and my family. I know where I want to go but I don't know how to get there, I guess God will have to guide me on that one. So for now I wrote 1 Corinthians 13 out on our kitchen chalkboard (I'd show it to you but the whole phone thing ya know), I'm praying it daily and we are all memorizing it.
I have a Valentine's Day Pinboard where I am pinning my favorite ideas to put love in action as well as just fun V-Day activities if you want to check it out and here are a few of my favorites that I hope to do in the coming weeks.
Put notes on everyone's doors to tell them why I love them (there was no link when I checked back on pinterest). I want this to be a habit more than just a holiday to do.
I love this idea by the dating divas
So for now would you please specificly pray for me, my family and yourself to love the way the Lord describes in 1 Corinthians 13.
