Love Is


In celebration of Valentine’s Day, I thought I’d share a poem I wrote that was inspired by 1 Corinthians 13 in the Bible.  (If you’ve never read it before, you can read it here.  It’s an entire chapter dedicated to love.)  Whether you’re single or in a relationship (as love can be romantic or non-romantic), I hope that you all have the opportunity to celebrate the goodness of loving others not just on February 14, but every day of the year!

May your hearts always be overflowing with love.  🙂

Love Is…

Love is patient,

Love is kind,

Dwelling on the

Good in mind.

Does not envy,

Has no pride,

Honor you and

What’s inside.

Slow to anger

With clean slate,

Hold to good and

Never hate.

Bound in truth and

Trust in Him.

Light that shines will

Never dim.

Love protects us

And we trust

We’ll always hope

To stay just

Happy, joyful,

Faithful, free.

We call it love.

You…and me.
