Steph wants to be Love

1 Corinthians 13:1-8a and 13
If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.

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....And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is Love.
I made bold the ones I'm working on. It's a journey that's for sure! It is a comfort to know that God loves me this way!

P.S. Did you submit your video yet to funniest home video's????? I think you and Malachy would win with your basketball moves, you should send in a copy. Honestly! Most people don't have any videos that great. I surely don't. Send it in.

Were is that video so I can see it?

Great post Stef. Do you remember that I had that hanging on my wall the whole time we live on Oregon? I had it for years before that as well on my wall and read it a thousand times. Mae, my very dear Mae gave it to me. It got lost in a move. How I wish I had it still.

LOVE it! I really need to be in the word. I want to live my life for Christ and not me. I'm so sick of me.

I am clearing not loving anyone in God's sense. I want to die to self and give it all back to God.
