This and That...I Corinthians 13:13

So now faith, hope and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love. 
I Corinthians 13:13

Happy Saturday, dear readers! We are about to enter the month of all things love...February. So, I'm starting the month with a favorite scripture that emphasizes love...I Corinthians 13:13. I want to keep faith, hope and, especially, love in my thoughts, actions and motivations as I go through the month of February. Faith will help keep me centered as I strive to be the person God wants me to be. Hope will remind me that even when things are not going well (and also when they are) God's will is being accomplished in my life and I can count on His loving presence no matter what life throws at me. And love will hopefully be my guide in how I respond to those around me, even as I remember that God loves me even when I am less than lovable! If I can remember 1 Corinthians 13:13, I should be ready for this month that emphasizes love! 

How about you? What keeps you centered, not only in February when love is emphasized, but throughout the year? Please feel free to share your thoughts below. Have a great weekend everyone!

What a great focus for the month ahead. What keeps me centered is meeting daily with the Lord, and when I can get away, I go to a local park to enjoy the silence and the chance to think without interruptions. I will think about what you wrote since I struggle with the concept of love.

I, too, really enjoy having silence in order to think. I hope you are able to have some chances this month to get away to the park for relaxtion and reflection! Have a great week!
