I was reading my friend Carols blog and was struck by what she had to say about "loving one another".

Several years ago someone suggested to me to substitute my name for the word love in verses 4-7 of 1 Corinthians 13:4-8. (which looks something like this)

pamela is patient (sometimes)
pamela is kind (usually)
pamela does not envy or boast (me? nevah)
pamela is not arrogant or rude (guilty as charged)
pamela does not insist on her own way (ditto)
pamela is not irritable or resentful (thats me before 10 am AND caffeine)
pamela does not rejoice at wrongdoing (ouch)
pamela rejoices at the truth (yes i do)

as i write these words, i am convicted by how far i've come and by how very far i still have to go.
i am so very thankful that :

Love bears all things.
Love believes all things.
Love hopes all things
Love endures all things.
