Every once in a while God needs to hit me upside the head with the clue by four. Today it was in the second reading from 1 Corinthians 13:5b-
Love does not brood over injury
Let's say it again so I don't forget...
LOVE DOES NOT BROOD OVER INJURY
Aaryk says I could just stop at 'Love does not brood', and he's probably right!
This is a hard lesson to remember, but an important one. Not only for my marriage, but in all my relationships. I need to learn to let go of the hurt and move on. Whether a friend or loved one is the source, and whether or not it affects the relationship in any meaningful way, I need to learn to let it go and pray. Just pray. That's the only way I will still be able to love, really love.
