Reading-1 Corinthians 13 • Love is patient and kind. • Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. • Love does not demand it’s own way. • Love is not irritable and it keeps no record of when it has been wronged. • It is never glad about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. • Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful and endures through every circumstance.
Love will last forever. Now we know only a little. All that I now know is partial and incomplete. • There are three things that will endure-faith, hope and love-and the greatest of these is love. • I Corinthians Chapter 13 verses 4-13
I Promise by Dorothy Colgon • I promise to give you the best of myself and to ask of you no more than you can give. • I promise to respect you as your own person and to realise that your interests, desires and needs are no less important than my own. • I promise to share with you my time and my attention and to bring joy, strength and imagination to our relationship
I Promise • I promise to keep myself open to you, to let you see through the window of my world into my innermost fears and feelings, secrets and dreams. • I promise to grow along with you, to be willing to face changes in order to keep our relationship alive and exciting. • I promise to love you in good times and in bad, with all I have to give and all I feel inside in the only way I know how. Completely and forever.
