ANGELA & BRIAN

TRUE LOVE ~ WHAT ON EARTH IS IT ? A 3 6 3 2 SONNET



PAUL OF TARSUS was an  itinerant Preacher & Teacher in the Christian Church of thr FIRST CENTURY ! He wrote Spiritual Letters (Epistles) to the Churches He visited in Rome - Corinth - Ephesus etc !  Corinth was a very debauched and sinful City ! *To Play the Corinthian* meant a Person was living a debauched & sinful Life. To counteract this when Paul wrote to Corinth (under the guidance of the Holy Spirit) he included THIS LOVE POEM in his First Letter. In a Modern Bible it appears as Chapter 13. Angelas Mother read it at our Wedding in March.  Our POEM today is a paraphrase ~ AMEN  Love Angela & Brian XOXOX

 

I can be ELOQUENT ~ but without LOVE ~ Im a tinkling CYMBAL

I can be SPIRITULLY GIFTED ~ but without LOVE ~ I am NOTHING

I can be a GIVER & a MARTYR ~ but  without LOVE ~ I am USELESS

 

TRUE LOVE ~ Suffers PATIENTLY & is always KIND

TRUE LOVE ~ Is never ENVIOUS & is never PROUD

TRUE LOVE ~ Behaves with   MODERATION & is GENTLE

TRUE LOVE ~ Loves the TRUTH & hates FALSEHOOD

TRUE LOVE ~ Bears - Believes - Hopes & Endures

TRUE LOVE ~ NEVER  EVER  FAILS ~ AMEN !

 

PROPHESIES will FAIL ~ TONGUES - CEASE ~ KNOWLEDGE VANISH

NOW ~ We see through a Dark Glass ~ but then FACE TO FACE

Once I thought like a CHILD ~ but NOW ~ I am thinking like a MAN

 

NOW abides these THREE ~ Pure FAITH ~ Perfect HOPE & True LOVE

BUT ~ the greatest of these will always be ~ TRUE LOVE ~ AMEN !

 

Thanks for visit ~ comments welcome ~ Love Angela & Brian XOXOX

 

When we renew our Wedding Vows in March 2021 (or 2022) with 100 guests ANGELA & I will have *TRUE LOVE* as our first WALTZ at our DISCO after the Wedding Breakfast. WE sure have a Guardian Angel who brought US together & keeps our LOVE forever TRUE !

    Good write A&B.
    I dread to think how The Message has modernised this. I dare not look. Probably murdered the language - or marmalised it - good word there! Ken Dodd used it! lol.

      Good old Corinthians 1 :13 eh?

      • ANGELA & BRIAN

        Thanks Dusk ~ Considering it in context ~ and the moral condition of the City he addressed it to ~ to US it is a very fine statement of what *TRUE LOVE* (especially in Marriage) should be all about ! We apply these principles in Our Marriage ! We know they will sustain US for the next 50 Years ~ Golden Wedding in 2070 ~ AMEN !

        Blessings & Joy to You & Yours
        Love Angela Brian & Smokey !!!

          Plenty more to love than romantic love.

            TRUE LOVE - one that stands by you, while you are endeavoring to be a better self....

            .....
            so take that vow every day, and waltz through life.

                when all is said and done, may it be Love that triumphs and beckon that dawn of existence: where differences need not exist...

                Beautifully paraphrased I wish you both Peace and health, as for love , you already drink from its nectar! Stay safe! Blessings to the Trio
