A New Normal

So of course I’m a lover of Dante, Pablo, Shakespeare and other great poets who define tragic love. But I do know, what is true. Truth is God’s love, in Corinthians, and it is difficult to strive for. It’s offered to each of us, yet we seek romantic love naturally, especially if we’ve been raised to pursue the love of this world. But here’s to a new normal, and defining love properly – each and every time. 

Corinthians..

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.  For we know in part and we prophesy in part,  10 but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears.  11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me.  12 Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

 13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

  3. I’m not big into poetry, but what I really love it when a prose writer is poetic. Does that make sense? Have you ever read House on Mango Street?
