I’m thankful for real love. My life story is both tragic and triumphant. I serve a mighty God and He allowed me to know and receive love. I am in love. I’m in love with a wonderful man who sees my beauty and admires my strength. Who makes me feel as though I am the most important person in the world. He supports my dreams and encourages my spirit. When I am down and out he is the one who can instantly make me feel better. He listens, laughs and loves. With his whole heart. Not just little pieces. He makes me feel special. I like that. I am thankful for having and discovering a real healthy love at 41 and finally understanding what it says about love in 1 Corinthians 13:4:7.
1 Corinthians 13:4-7 (NRSV)
4 Love is patient; love is kind; love is not envious or boastful or arrogant5 or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful;6 it does not rejoice in wrongdoing, but rejoices in the truth. 7 It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
