I’ve decided that my word for this year will be “love.” I would like for my home to characterized by love rather than by strife. I want to focus on responding to others with love in all my relationships, especially with those people who are difficult to love.
I also want to look for more ways to reach out beyond my circle of family and friends to show love this year.
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.
I Cor. 13:4-8 NIV
