Love is . . .

On the eleventh day of Christmas my True Love gave to me,
more than eleven facets of love.

Love never gives up.
Love cares more for others than for self.
Love doesn’t want what it doesn’t have.
Love doesn’t strut,
Doesn’t have a swelled head,
Doesn’t force itself on others,
Isn’t always “me first,”
Doesn’t fly off the handle,
Doesn’t keep score of the sins of others,
Doesn’t revel when others grovel,
Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth,
Puts up with anything,
Trusts God always,
Always looks for the best,
Never looks back,
But keeps going to the end.

 Love never dies.
(1Corinthians 13:4-8a The Message)


  1. This is one of my favorite (and most convicting!) translations of the 'Love' verses. Great eleventh day sharing. :-)

  2. Wow... That list really speaks to the heart. Selfless humility in God is the answer. Gotta reflect on that...
