Eternal Love

        He doesn't bring me roses

        but He is called the Rose of Sharon.

        He doesn't send flowers to my office

        but He grows beautiful flowers in my garden.

        He doesn't kiss me

        but I sense His kiss when I feel sunshine or softly falling rain.

        He doesn't give me sparkling diamonds to wear

        but the stars He set in the sky shine even more brilliantly.

        He doesn't whisper in my ear

        but His still small voice is ever with me.

        He isn't a valentine who has pledged lifelong love

        but He is Eternal Love.

        He demonstrated it

        Not by gifts or well-intentioned promises

        but by offering Himself as the fulfillment of promise.

        Not by standing with me at the wedding altar

        but by placing Himself on the altar.

        That I may know life

        That I may know Him

        and love Him forever.

Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. Love does not demand its 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.   (1 Corinthians 13:4-7 NLT)
