A Couple

A Couple

a love that was and is no more
yet within be a heart with love evermore
to another my love I may give
for shared moments we to live
for whatever a tomorrow may bring
this heart now to BE and to sing
know who I am in spirit's domain
and known shall each be by name.

  1. The Greatest Love of All

    “And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love”
    (1 Corinthians 13:13, NKJV)

    TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria
    In our culture today, so many people are confused about what love is. We love pizza, movies and sports, but we also love our family or spouse. If we look to the Word of God, we see God’s definition of love. First Corinthians 13 tells us that “love is patient and kind. It does not envy, nor boast. It is not proud. It is not rude. It does not seek its own way, is not easily angered, and keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not rejoice in evil, but rejoices in the truth. Love believes, hopes and endures. Love never fails.” This is how God responds to us, and this is how we should respond to the people in our lives — with patience, kindness, hope, humility and love. Scripture tells us that God is love, and His character never changes!

    Today and every day, know that God loves you with an everlasting love. He will never leave you nor forsake you. He is for you and has a good plan for you. Receive His perfect love today and let Him transform you from the inside out. His love is the greatest love and will last throughout all eternity!
