What Love Is

While browsing in the internet, I saw the following poem when I searched about the ever loved lines from 1 Corinthians 13:4-7.  These were even made emphasis by Nicolas Sparks in a book which later became a movie called A Walk to Remember. The book is actually my most favorite book of his. Whenever I think about the meaning of love, I always remember that it comes from a particular epistle written by St. Paul. Here’s an edited version by Dr. David Alan Black for our continuous appreciation.

Love is very patient,
Love is very kind,
Love is never envious
Or vaunted up with pride.

Nor is she conceited,
And never is she rude,
Never does she think of self
Or ever get annoyed.

She never is resentful,
Is never glad with sin,
But always glad to side with truth,
Whene’er the truth should win.

She bears up under everything,
Believes the best in all,
There is no limit to her hope,
And never will she fall.

My Only Hope

What gives me hope? The song, Only Hope, came up to my mind instantly. I was first in love with it when I heard and watched Mandy Moore sing it in her movie, A Walk to Remember. I am hoping I could sing this lovely song someday. Who knows?

Going back to the question, what gives me hope is my belief that I can also be successful in my chosen career path. I have been down once, twice, thrice, and even countless times that I cannot let myself be drowned with self-pity again. It’s time that I move forward courageously especially in writing more posts here in WordPress. Frankly, I love seeing progress in my blogging and I enjoy seeing more improvements from me in the coming months ahead.

I would like to end this post with this beautifully made video clip of Only Hope which was sung originally by Switchfoot.
