27 Years of Love – Thyme4Faith

27 Years of Love

Today we celebrate 27 years of love. Life is precious as we all know. Getting the chance to share 27 years with the love of your life is a gift. So what is love?

Love is patient and kind 

Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude

It does not demand its own way

It is not irritable

it keeps no record of being wronged

It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out

Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance

1 Corinthians 4-7

I wish I could say the success of our 27 years of marriage is based on behaving this way 100% of the time. But of course, that wouldn’t be the truth. In fact, I don’t believe anyone can attain this level of selfless love on their own. But if you include Jesus in the equation, you have a shot. He’s the only one who gave up everything, died for us and rose again to give us eternal life. Now that’s selfless love.

With this sustaining love, our marriage endures. The words I cling to from this scripture are “never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.” These are the words from my heart to yours Michael. Happy Anniversary. I love you.
