Sunday Inspiration

First Corinthians 13: 4-7 is about what we are called to do - to love. One of my mentors reminds me, quite often, to replace the words "Love" and "It" with my name and say these verses aloud. I am continually challenged to be more patient, kind, peaceful, compassionate, honest, humble, attentive, understanding, mindful, self-aware, courageous and mindful. I am a constant work in progress and this practice is challenging me lately. The patience part especially. So I will continue to grow and stretch and work on me.
