God's Girl

Finding the extraordinary in the ordinary

Love

on June 8, 2014

Hello, there!

I hope you enjoy today’s blog.

(I’m learning how to place pics, so please bear with me!)

 

LOVE IS PATIENT.

It doesn’t stand in line with a red face and an angry scowl, waiting to be served.

Instead, Love asks, “How can I serve?”


LOVE IS KIND.

Love looks for the waitress having a bad day and leaves a note with an extra tip.

 

LOVE IS NOT JEALOUS.

Love doesn’t get all wrapped up in the “haves” and “have nots”.

Love is not insecure.

It knows it’s been blessed.

Love is a lot more interested in having a relationship with the Jones’ than in keeping up with them.

 

LOVE DOES NOT BRAG.

Love doesn’t throw God’s gifts in the nearest trash can, nor does it throw them in the face of another.

 

LOVE IS NOT PROUD.

Love is not afraid to scrub toilets.

Love knows it can learn a lot on its knees.

 

LOVE IS NOT RUDE.

Love remembers that each person it encounters has been handcrafted by God.

Love won’t insult His workmanship.

 

LOVE IS NOT EASILY ANGERED.

It is not easily offended because it knowsit has been an offender.

 

LOVE KEEPS NO RECORD OF WRONGS.

Love doesn’t  sit high upon a pile of rocks it has collected over the years.

It doesn’t say, “I remember when this was thrown at me.”

No, Love doesn’t dwell on that pile, instead it rests against God’s Grace.

LOVE TAKES NO PLEASURE IN EVIL.

It doesn’t watch reality shows and get excited over a fight.

It isn’t easily entertained by rumors.

It can’t stomach cruelty.

 

LOVE REJOICES WITH THE TRUTH.

Love gets giddy when it hears a child say, “I belong to Jesus.”

 

Love jumps up and down when it hears the “clank” of chains falling to the ground!

It loves the sound of those set free!

 

LOVE ALWAYS PROTECTS…

 

ALWAYS TRUSTS….

 

ALWAYS HOPES…ALWAYS PRESERVES.

LOVE NEVER FAILS.
