Dear God, your love
is shown in many ways:
through parents, husbands, wives,
children, other relatives, and friends.
The connections we are born with
and those we develop with others
give us support and expand
our understanding of love.
People in our local church
and in churches throughout the world
are there to love us in your name.
Even saints beyond the grave foster us.
Dear God, we have received
so that we also may give.
Thank you, Dear God.
But Ruth said, “Do not press me to leave you or to turn back from following you! Where you go, I will go; where you lodge, I will lodge; your people shall be my people, and your God my God.
1 Corinthians 13:13:
And now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; and the greatest of these is love.
