Inspirational Thursday-Love

"Love is patient, love is 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

records of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth.

It always protects, it always trusts, always hopes, always preserves. 

Love never fails."

King James Version: 1 Corinthians 13


So what does love mean to you?  How do you show someone you love them?  Is it through hugs and kisses?  Maybe you show love through giving a gift?  Do you show love by giving of your time? Or is it hearing the words " I love you," which mean the most?



Perhaps one of the reasons that love is so powerful is because when we truly love, we will sacrifice our own needs, and desires for the ones we love.  We will invest time and energy in finding out what makes someone feel loved. Maybe it is generously giving up the moment for someone else, maybe it is giving without expecting. Maybe it is going without so someone else can have. Perhaps love is the purest form of humanity.  


I am so thankful for the constant and unconditional love of my sweet family

and my dear friends.

So, whatever love means to you, may you always hold it tight,

never take it for granted, cherish it and give it.

And, my wish for you- is it that receive more than you could have ever 

dreamed of and always keep love in your heart!


Jemma's home is a quiet spot nestled among the trees. You might find me writing, reading, or puttering in my Greenhouse, tweaking a recipe, crafting a wreath or loving on my grands. Always living with a grateful heart.


  1. I found your lovely blog through Linda at A LA CARTE. I love your pix and very thought provoking words. I have so many to love and am loved by so many. God has blessed me with the most wonderful friends. I guess I can show them my love by spending time with them. That's just hard to do with our busy lives.
    Have a great week.
