“Why isn’t Uncle Jason married?” Colin asked me with great seriousness. “Well, buddy, he just hasn’t found the right woman. I’m sure he’s looking for her, though.”
Colin paused, and I could see the wheels turning. “Well, why doesn’t he just pray to God to send her to him so he doesn’t have to keep looking all over the place.” I chuckled a little, “Well, I’m sure Uncle Jason would like that, too. You’ll have to suggest it to him.”
Finding the right mate is serious business. Keeping the right mate is even harder. You may have noticed by now a common theme for the week – marriage. Since it’s Valentine’s Day this weekend, I thought it appropriate to talk about ways to keep the love alive.
Here is what the Bible says about love. Take some time today and reflect on how your relationship reflects this kind of love.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. 1 Cor. 13:4-8 NIV
I'm one sassy southern Mama who loves Jesus and isn't afraid to shout it. My passions are Jesus, my husband, my kids, and chocolate. I'm a teacher turned Christian writer. Ask me why I love Jesus and be prepared to sit a spell.
Love the Lord your God with all your heart and soul, but don't forget to love your neighbor as yourself. I am a firm believer that we can change the world one person at a time - by being Christ with the skin on to those who are in need.
