Tuesday Prayer

broken-heart

Dear Friend,

On this day when some celebrate love with chocolate and flowers and diamonds, I am thinking of hard love

love that really listens

love that cries together at a death

love that does the rough work of agreeing to disagree

love that looks forward to an uncertain future

love that works, apart and together

love that doesn’t have a tidy boundary of marriage or label

love that brings the bandages

You modeled that love for us.

We thank you.

Amen.

    I preached on 1 Corinthians 13 and used this theme, love is not easy, wish I would have had your prayer to use last Sunday. Thanks for sharing.
