God IS Love

2-red-heart[1]God never gives up.
God cares more for others than for self.
God doesn’t want what it doesn’t have.
God doesn’t strut,
God doesn’t have a swelled head,
God doesn’t force itself on others,
God isn’t always “me first,”
God doesn’t fly off the handle,
God doesn’t keep score of the sins of others,2-red-heart[1]
God doesn’t revel when others grovel,
But God takes pleasure in the flowering of truth,
God puts up with anything,
God always trusts,
God always looks for the best,
God never looks back,
God keeps going to the end.–I Corinthians 13, paraphrased.

Happy Valentine’s Day, from the Lover of your soul
