Today is a personal day. There is no need to think on exquisite drapery, silk linens, or gorgeous cascading floral arrangements. No, none of these things need to be mentioned today. Rather, I sit here looking out my window staring at the vast open blue sky. I sit here thinking. A phrase that keeps echoing in my mind over and over is ..and the greatest of these is love. ..and the greatest of these is love. ..and the greatest of these
As a child I sat in my moms arms and told her how I wanted to be known for my wisdom and my kindness when I grew up. To this day, she reminds me of that when Im feeling defeated. She encourages me to strive to be better in all that I do. I am not writing this to acknowledge that, in fact, I have attained these attributes. Because to be quite frank, that would be a lie. I look back on my past and am able to replay handfuls of mindless actions certainly not displaying wisdom or kindness. Im not perfect and nor will I ever be. The only thing that brings me comfort is that each day is a new day. Each day I can choose to get out of bed and do what I do just better, and with wisdom and kindness.
Give love and receive love
I have a genuine love for people. When I love, I love. When I forgive, I forgive. I cant help it, its who I am. I believe this is why I love doing what I do so much. I love people and accept them for who they are, whether good or bad, perfect or not.
I am writing this for no one else but myself. I need to be reminded and encouraged that no one is perfect and on top of that, simply to just love. If you don’t have love what do you have? Hold tight to love and never let it go.
Faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love. 1 Corinthians 13:13
