Love

February 14, 2010

Today being Valentines Day, I thought I would share the passage of Scripture from the Bible that sums up a good bit about love. Enjoy.

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. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me. Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

To My Wife,

February 13, 2010

Coming back from a date with my wife, just about to put a period on the end of my day, I decided to write a little blog about my wife.  Tomorrow will be the 17th Valentines day that we will celebrate together.   At first I thought I might write a recap about past years, but that would take way to long and be boring to everyone except me and Amy.  Next I thought about writing out a bunch of things about Amy that I love.  I sat there for a few minutes just reflecting on our wedding day and boy she must have not know what she was getting herself into.   All in all, I’m just glad that we are together.  We have been through many things that have tested us, stretched us, and strengthened.  I’m just glad I have Amy to go through life with.  I can’t imagine my life without her and our children.  I think she should get an olympic medal for having to put up with and my weirdness and immaturity.   She has grown and matured over the years into such a Godly woman, a great wife, and an awesome mother.  I can’t wait to see down the road what our life will be like, but there is one thing I don’t ever doubt, we will be together through it all.

I love you Amy!
