Long-lasting Love

The heart that truly loves never forgets. (Thomas Moore, 18th-19th century Irish writer)

After a few years, husbands often begin to forget things like birthdays and anniversaries. It isn’t that they’ve forgotten their mates or don’t still love them, it’s just that life brings too many dates and events to remember them all. But wives love it when husbands do remember. On the other hand, it’s important to forget past grievances. That’s really strong evidence of true love.

Live happily with the woman you love . . .  The wife God gives you is your reward for all your earthly toil (Ecclesiastes 9:9). Love keeps no record of being wronged (1 Corinthians 13:5).
