I’m blogging today, joining Five-Minute Friday and Kate Motaung. The word is limit and we are supposed to blog for five minutes. Oh my I have no words right now.
“Love knows no limit to its endurance, no end to its trust, no fading of its hope, it can outlast anything. It is, in fact, the one thing that still stands when all else has fallen.” 1 Corinthians 13:7-10 J.B. Phillips New Testament
I chose that verse doing a Bible search of limit. Not the direction I was going, buy hey it is Valentine’s weekend, and my husband and I just got back from a trip to Waco where we spent the night, had an awesome dinner and lunch and toured the Magnolia Market. FUN weekend, and it’s not over. Tomorrow is church and then the kids and two grandsons will be over for pizza.
I’ve thought a lot about love this weekend and hey the rest of 1 Corinthians 13. My husband quotes that verse at every wedding he does. It never gets old. I remember the first time I went to a retreat and came back and gave a testimony about how it impacted me putting my name in there.
As I ponder on this Valentine’s weekend, and reminded last night whispering and talking sweet things to my hubby about how we met in high school and this month is the anniversary of 50 years of being together because of the choice he made to throw popcorn in my hair at a basketball game and I met him that night.
Try it. Each place you see the word love or it, insert your name instead.
Love (Debbie) is patient, love (Debbie) is kind. It (Debbie) does not envy, it (Debbie) does not boast, it (Debbie) is not proud. It (Debbie) does not dishonor others, it (Debbie) is not self-seeking, it(Debbie) is not easily angered, it (Debbie) keeps no record of wrongs. Love (Debbie) does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It (Debbie) always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love (Debbie) never fails. 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 (NIV)
So what are you doing this weekend? Have you taken a scripture and added your name. I do it all the time. It will make it come alive.
