“Love Never Ends”

“Love never ends.”
–1 Corinthians 13:8

Today, we posted on Instagram and Facebook:

Our hearts are joyful that in a spirit of reaffirmation and recommitment, we were married — again! — in a private church ceremony yesterday, on the heels of a challenging year. For months, we’d been struggling to rebuild our relationship, one day at a time. On social media, we’d share our happier moments while suffering the agonizing ones privately. Turning to God, individually and together, we’ve discovered renewed faith, hope, and love. “No one has ever seen God. But as long as we love one another, God will live in us and his love will be complete in us.” (John 4:12)

Within minutes, we were enormously touched by the expressions of love and congratulations that ensued.

While acknowledging its difficulties (“To love someone is not for the faint of heart,” commented one chef on Facebook), everyone still seems to be rooting for love to triumph.

We are, too.

“Love is patient; love is kind; love is not envious or boastful or arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice in wrongdoing, but rejoices in the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

“Love never ends.”

–I Corinthians 13:4-8
