Tough Day

The scripture that follows was the lesson at my mom's church today. This is scripture I should ponder over, study and commit to heart. I should be forced to recite it 12 times a day. AND even then, I would still be a tad bit "clangy". Thanks to all my friends and family that love me anyway!!

1 Corinthians 13
" 1If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 3If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.
4Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres."
