Love is patient, love and 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 (1 Corinthians 14:4-7 NIV).
This Scripture opened our LWMLC meeting on a sub-zero winter’s day in February with seven ladies attending. Louise led a Bible study on love messages found in numerous parts of Scripture. The greatness of the Lord’s Word is that is doesn’t have a Best Before date attached. The study really set the tone for Valentines Day later in the month.
A short business meeting was followed by a potluck lunch – oh, how we missed those delicious times together. Thanks be to the Lord for the opportunity to enjoy this once again. The afternoon was spent decorating a colouring page of a lamb to decorate the tired-looking message board in the church entry. To add some fun and tell the message hearts with the above Scripture passage were added. Pieces of quilt batting and Elmer’s glue stuck to our fingers, stickers landed on the floor and on our tops, to say nothing of in our hair. Finally fluffy lambs appeared. Did some need shearing, we wondered?
Sisters in Christ, we had a fun-filled day and would like to think the Lord was laughing as He watched our child-like happiness together.
