Vera surprised me one evening with this drawing of the hubby and I. It had a bold caption: Love never fails.
There were flowers in a vase on a table. A big cross stood out in the middle of the table.
It reminded me of this verse in 1 Corinthians.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails.
I asked Vera why she chose to draw the cross. She said it means that Jesus is in the house.
I then asked why she chose to write the words “Love never fails.” She said it was papa who gave her the idea. She originally had in mind some other words to write, but she thought daddy’s idea sounded better.
I was glad for this gentle reminder to keep God in the heart of all things, including our humble home.
As for everything else, Love never fails. His love, that is. Our human love may wane or fade or grow cold over time and trials. But His love never does.
