The heart that has truly loved never forgets. (Thomas Moore, 19th-century Irish writer)

It’s safe to say that the word love is often misused today. When viewing a newly remodeled home (see the TV renovation shows), you’ll regularly hear someone say, “Oh, I just love that.” But, in just a few years, the viewer will likely want to change the décor that she “loved” so much. It’s people (not things) that we are to love and be loved, and that should be long-lasting.

Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance (1 Corinthians 13:7).
