Love Is

During the week when we celebrate Saint Valentine’s Day, meditate on the Apostle Paul’s description of true love:

Love is patient, love is kind, it isn’t jealous, it doesn’t brag, it isn’t arrogant, it isn’t rude, it doesn’t seek its own advantage, it isn’t irritable, it doesn’t keep a record of complaints, it isn’t happy with injustice, but it is happy with the truth. Love puts up with all things, trusts in all things, hopes for all things, endures all things. 

Love never fails.

Now faith, hope, and love remain–these three things–and the greatest of these is love.

1 Corinthians 13:4-8; 13, Common English Bible

My Mind

I saw this post on social media, and it captures how many of us often feel!

My mind is like my internet browser:

  • 19 tabs are open
  • 3 of them are frozen
  • And I have no idea where the music is coming from!

Prayer for the Day:

Lord,

Calm and quiet my soul.

Grant me the grace

to feel your enfolding arms

and to claim your peace.

Amen.
