When it seems that you will never be able to overcome the turmoil of joining two lives into one and can still see the light.
Love is patient.
When you’ve been hurt by a misunderstood word or intention you can bury that hurt in the ground and forget it.
Love is kind.
When the one you love receives recognition or praise, you applaud him. When he tells you that you’re beautiful, you cherish the words. When you’ve accomplished something important, you don’t brag.
Love does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
Even though you feel you’re right, you’ll never discredit the one you love. You will always place their needs before your own – holding them in the highest esteem. You hold and control your temper. You don’t go to bed angry, because you don’t want to hang on to past wrongs.
Love does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
You make a point of being honest about everything in your relationship. When you become united as one person, you cannot keep secrets from each other.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
If it means laying down your life for the one you love, you will do it willingly. You’ll never hesitate to come to their defense, to trust them implicitly, look for the best in each other and never give up on them.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
