the past few days 1st Cor 13 4-7 has also been on my mind
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Insert your name instead of the word “Love” so it’s Deanie is patient, Deanie is kind… Yikes. Especially when I get to the “keeps no record of wrongs” which is also a huge part of compassion, I think. i’ve got stuff to work on.
