Oh, did you know that in Japan, it’s the women who gift chocolate to men on Valentine’s Day? I like that Of course, the gesture is reciprocated on White Day. This needs to happen worldwide, I believe. It’s a fun and romantic tradition.
Since it’s still the Cold Season, I’ll gift you this little poem to keep you warm and loved:
“When the cold comes and blows all the leaves,”
“You warm me up much like a pair of Winter gloves,”
“So I am writing this poem to you who always loves,”
“And who never leaves.”
“Since you have given me a pair of Winter gloves,”
“I shall place on your head a wreath of olive leaves.”
“Come now just like a pair of white doves,”
“Let us fly off to a place where everyone loves,”
“And no one ever leaves.”
1 Corinthians 13: 1 -13 Can anyone repeat this entire chapter from memory?
Try repeating, or even typing out this entire chapter.
First refresh your heart, or memory, by going over the chapter a few times, reading it, or just listening to it.
My version of choice is the KJV, in this version, Charity means Love!
Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.
And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.
Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,
Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;
Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;
Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.
But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.
When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.
