This is What Love Is

So many people have shown us love over the past week. It's been a hard week but has been made more bearable by those who have come along side us to help carry the load.

This is what love is:

It's a plant that our Life Group sent to my Grandma's funeral.

It's a warm meal (that I didn't have to cook) provided by our Life Group.

It's cards from friends, family, high school buddies, and other dear people who wanted to express their love for us.

All of these expressions of love have reminded me of a passage of verses. These verses clearly demonstrate that actions without love are nothing. To each of you have called, e-mailed, sent cards, plants, and flowers, brought us dinner, and offered up prayers on our behalf... thank you. I can't express my gratitude enough.

I Cor. 13

Though I speak with tongues of men and angels,but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal.And though I have the gift of prophesy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith so I could move mountains, but have not love I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to the poor and give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing. Love suffers long and is kind; does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not arrogant, does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, endures all things. Love never fails. Now abides faith, hope, and love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
