Love is never easy. Sometimes it’s very hard because of heartache. The pain can pierce your heart, where you could feel like dying. Then there are times when your heart sings and there is nothing else. Or when your children are born or when you’re first married. The hope and expectation of your heart soars. And you think your heart will burst. Then when your child gets into real trouble. And you look at him and sigh in pain. Then they accomplish something great and you have never been more proud of them. Or you hold a new born grandson and look at son and daughter in law in love. Or when a Prodigal son returns home. Heartache hurts. It’s no small thing, from the beginning of your life to the end. But if you never love because of pain, you will never know the joy of love. Love covers a multitude of sins. Love bears all things. Love believes all things. Love hopes all things. Love endures all things. Love never fails. Because love is God Himself.
