Tomorrow is February, my favorite month of the year.
Not only is it my birthday month, but this year Chinese New Year falls in February. But the reason I look forward to February is because it is all about LOVE!
I can’t even imagine a world in which all of mankind loves with a pure love: not a love for money or power but a true, self sacrificing, humble love. A love that does not pursue a filtered world or human race, but a love that accepts every person: celebrating their unique abilities, talents and personalities.
What I wouldn’t give to see all of the children of the world experience pure love: the same love we pour out on our children everyday. The love we tuck them into bed with, the love that kisses away all the hurts in their world, the love that allows them to see the world with wonder.
I wish I had something to give away. I wish that I had more motivation that just words to make you see the need to give, and maybe something will come (I do have 28 days). But for now I simply ask.
If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing.
Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
Love never ends.
