Continue Strong

Our Bible Reading today tells us about love. Love is patient and kind. It is not selfish or rude or boastful. Verse 7 says, ?Love patiently accepts all things. Love always trusts, always hopes, and always continues strong.?
When I think about something continuing strong, I think about roses. I am always amazed at how strong they are. I had a rosebush one time. Bugs, frost and my lawn mower could not kill that rosebush. When bad things happened to the bush, it seemed to strengthen the roots. Then later the rosebush produced even more beautiful roses.
My rosebush continued to be strong. Our love for other people should be strong, too. When we have problems with our family members or friends, we need to remember to be patient with them. Then our love will be strong.
