This verse is usually associated with weddings and anniversaries, but I think is should be broader than that. I think we show acts of love and kindness everyday to our family, friends, co-workers, and sometimes even strangers. My friend Amy made these and brought them in to work one afternoon, just because she felt like sharing.
I thought the lines of them, all perfect with their little frosting hats was too good to pass up photographing
(in fact, I told the people they had to wait until I got in a few shots).
I don't think God meant love to become this big grand gesture that marketing and jewelry and candy companies want to define. I think he meant that even on regular days or bad days, patience is love. Sometimes just a kind call or text, maybe helping an older person tie their shoe, or listening to a child tell you a story, ordinary kindness is love.
So as we head into spring and new growth and new beginnings, maybe we add on a little more love in simple ways.
