I know, it seems like all we talk about is love. But for us, it is what rights all wrongs, brings people together, ushers in peace + justice and allows the human race to thrive. Without love we have nothing.
“If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.
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 have not love, I am nothing.
If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.“
1 Corinthians 13:1-3
Everyday Brandon + I choose freely to surrender to LOVE! We choose LOVE no matter what. This alone give us the ability to be thankful everyday. To feel blessed everyday even if we don’t have what others have or know the people other people know. Love allows us to not compare ourselves with others and instead truly love others. Love is freedom and love is the way.
Any action that does not show love is false. It is evil and it wants to trick all of us. It is not easy to choose love everyday, it takes deep strength, unending patients, all kinds of kindness. Love does not get jealous, it is not prideful, and it never dishonors others. Love is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no records of wrongs my friends. This is truth.
So today we are thankful for LOVE.
