I could write about a lot of things tonight.
It was a full and busy day. Mary and I started bright and early to get ready for the clamoring of family who would visit our home.
A bustling and teeming sort of day. Somewhere in there…. we ate a couple of meals, hunted Easter Eggs, chatted endlessly, took Gator Rides, Car Rides, and worked on fixing computers. And more.
So tonight, now that I am finally sitting down, I am completely worn out. The morning started at 4 a.m., and now it is wrapping up at 11:00 p.m. Busy.
With all of that, I am showing a few photos from the good gathering.
I’ll tell you. I am so completely grateful for the loving, caring, kindness of some of the people in these photos. I am grateful to know such a gladness in my heart, because of them.
That. Is Peace. That. Is Joy. That. Is Love.
If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but do not have love, I have become a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. And if I give all my possessions to feed the poor, and if I surrender my body to be burned, but do not have love, it profits me nothing.
Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
Love never fails; but if there are gifts of prophecy, they will be done away; if there are tongues, they will cease; if there is knowledge, it will be done away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part; but when the perfect comes, the partial will be done away. When I was a child, I used to speak like a child, think like a child, reason like a child; when I became a man, I did away with childish things. For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face; now I know in part, but then I will know fully just as I also have been fully known. But now faith, hope, love, abide these three; but the greatest of these is love.
-1 Corinthians 13
