Love is patient

to my husband, Happy Valentine's Day!

Love is patient and kind. (like when you wash the dishes for me that have been in the sink for way too long, even though you cooked dinner)
Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. (like when you affirm me spending time with the chicks so that I can have some girl time)
Love does not demand its own way. (like when you watch “SuperWhy” with CJ instead of Sports Center.)
Love is not irritable, and it keeps no record of when it has been wronged. (like when you fill up my gas tank in the wee hours of the morning because I forgot that it was almost on Empty)
It is never glad about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. (like when you help people at work who are struggling with loss after a disaster)
Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. (like when you encourage my efforts to get in shape even though you’ve heard me make the same statements for the past 12 years)
Love will last forever … (till death do us part)
There are three things that will endure faith, hope, and love and the greatest of these is love. (I love you, wonderfulness!)

1 Corinthians 13:4-8, 13


  1. This is great, Lisa -- I may steal the idea from you. I especially could relate to the "Love never gives up..." item! Hope you and yours have a fabulous Valentine's Day!

  2. April ~ So glad you enjoyed my post. It's been a good day so far. Can't wait to see what CJ comes home with from preschool. RJ surprised me at work with some balloons, my favorite chocolate candy and a cute "dancing" flower. So sweet!

  3. How sweet!!!!! You are a very lucky woman :-)

    DP - following you back. Great blog, by the way!
