We have all heard or read 1 Corinthians 13:4-13, weather it was read in the scriptures or on a wedding invitation, but the question is how many of us live daily by the words, "Love is patient love is kind,...? For the next 365, now 364 days I dedicate my daily walk to the following passage-

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.

A journey I am sure to be difficult and challenging for it is not easy to be patient and kind in all circumstances and situations, especially when others are not patient and kind with us in return. Here in and of itself is where the challenge begins. This is my journey and I welcome you to walk it with me. I cannot promise you it will all be positive or easy, but what I can promise you is it will be real. One person, one walk, one life
… In love
