Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. -1 Corinthians 13:4-7
Whenever I look back, there are really those times that I want to punch my boyfriend in the face. That’s how irritated I am of him. But when I think of the positive things that he brought to my life, I just want to kiss him and hold his hand and work on making our dreams come true. ♥
