Love is the greatest

From our wedding in 1996

Jamie's parents Maurice and Maureen (the best parents ever!)

My favourite poem about love is from the bible;

Love is the greatest

Love is patient and kind.
Love is not boastful or proud, or rude,
It does not demand it's own way.
It is not irritable, and keeps no record of being wronged.

It does not rejoice about injustice,
But rejoices whenever the truth wins out.
Love never gives up, never loses faith,
Is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.

Prophecy, and speaking in unknown languages,
And special knowledge will become useless.

But love will last forever!

Now, our knowledge is partial and incomplete,
And even the gift of prophesy reveals only part of the picture...

But when full understanding comes,
The partial things become useless.

When I was a child, I spoke and thought
and reasoned as a child.
But when I grew up, I put away childish things.

Now I see things imperfectly as in a cloudy mirror,
But then, will see everything with perfect clarity.

All that I know now is partial and incomplete,
But then, I will know everything completely,
Just as God knows me completely.

Three things will last forever;
Faith, hope and love.

And the greatest of these, is love.

1 Corinthians 4-13
