STOP AND THINK – Better to have loved and lost, than to have never loved at all. (St. Augustine, 4th & 5th century Christian theologian)

Almost everyone has lost something or someone he or she held dear—a favorite toy, a pet, a beloved person. We cherish the memory of those lost things. But, if you’ve never experienced that kind of loss, you’ve probably never experienced that kind of love either. God created love in us to reflect Him and to enjoy relationships at their very best.

What a person desires is unfailing love. … Whoever pursues righteousness and love finds life, prosperity, and honor. (Proverbs 19:22; Proverbs 21:21)
