For Sure

Today's #30Layers30Days prompt is For Sure.

What do you know for sure about life and love? Perhaps it's a lesson that you had to learn over and over again before you got it or a guiding principle that now informs your decisions.

What I love about this self discovery challenge is that it's bringing so many things to my remembrance.

Love is patient. Love is kind. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.

That is from 1 Corinthians 13. I was raised in church. My parents even had a Prayer Room upstairs. I grew up as a "PK" ((Preacher's Kid... We always get a bad rap)). Everything I know that is for sure about love is in that scripture. It's a guiding principle that I seem to have forgotten on my journey to happiness.

What I know for sure about life is that it is tough. IT. IS. TOUGH. There's no room for selfishness, especially when you have a spouse and children. There's no room for giving up just because you feel like it.

I know for sure that life and love go hand-in-hand. It's hard to live my life... A married life... Without patience. Without kindness. Without truth. Without everything that love should represent.
