Love Perseveres...

Someone commented this morning that love perseveres in spite of...
Yes, it does.
 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 1 Cor.13:7

Love perseveres
Beyond fumbles and stumbles
And grumbles
And going unnoticed
And such

Love perseveres
Beyond pleading and heeding
And needing
And longing for
 Its returned touch

Love perseveres
Through tears and the hurt
That seems to be
It’s testing flip-side

We should love like He
Who first loved full and free
Thus, Love perseveres
It is what
God does
…for us
