Love is patient…

So remember how I was talking about patience?  I posted that blog last night for today.  Then, tonight, as I’m snuggling up in bed, I get my Bedside Blessing book and this was the message.

“To love and be loved is the bedrock of our existence.  But love must also flex and adapt.  Rigid love is not true love.  It is veiled manipulation, a conditional time bomb that explodes when frustrated.  Genuine love willingly waits!  It isn’t pushy or demanding.  While it has its limits, its boundaries are far-reaching.  It neither clutches or clings.  Real love is not shortsighted, selfish or insensitive.  It detects needs and does what is best for the other person without being told.”

Love is patient, love is kind.  1 Corinthians 13:4

Coincidence?  I think not.
