1 Corinthians 13 New International Version (NIV)If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.
2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast,[b] but do not have love, I gain nothing.
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears.
11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. 12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

If our lives would live by this Chapter. Knowing that these three remain: FAITH, HOPE and LOVE. The Bible speaks of LOVE being the greatest. I have found that unconditional love remains in my life. I have learned to forgive and forget. I have learned to love from the middle of my heart and do my best daily to be a good example. I live what I teach and I love that God has brought me from a mighty long way in life. I have been broken, hurt, disappointed, saw death of loved ones and pets, but still trust the Lord. There is a season for all things and it's always time to love like Jesus loved.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends. Never doubt the power of God or his promises. He does gives the desires of one's heart and love us daily. Purpose this a good day and know that you are loved!
