Shark Valley Visitors Area, The Florida Everglades, July 2013
Let love be genuine; hate what is evil, hold fast to what is good; love one another with mutual affection; outdo one another in showing honor. Do not lag in zeal, be ardent in spirit, serve the Lord. Rejoice in hope, be patient in suffering, persevere in prayer.
When our lives are upside down, which happens more often than most of us are willing to admit, the challenge to love is great, but selfless love turns us outward and transforms us and becomes the gift that we need to be ready to give and to receive at those moments.
