1 Corinthians 13:4

I wonder why patience would be the very first in the list of "what is love"?

I just spent 10 days traveling with my 85 year old mother in New York. I had to practice patience each day. It required putting her needs first, it required understanding the fact that she can't hear well, or move fast. Most of all it required holding my tongue when I could have easily made comments that would have reflected My frustration.

Intentionally putting her needs and happiness above my own made those 10 days memorable and WE both enjoyed our vacation.

Love it, Allene. And as we talked about yesterday,
Prov. 31: 2b..."she laughs at the days to come."
