Faith Hope Love
When Helen & I got married in 1998 we had NO idea what we had really signed up for. Marriage was SO much more challenging than we had expected! We almost gave up. The first 2 or 3 years were so painful. But our Heavenly Parent's extravagant love and grace covered us and, even though we still have far to grow, we are falling deeper in love everyday. This collection of songs is a journal of sorts. Some songs are from those difficult times when we just plain didn't like each other very much (after the 'Angel' period ;-) and others came during days punctuated by joy, beauty and passion when we couldn't keep our hands off of each other! All of them are a celebration of the highest, truest love to which we aspire. 'Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand it's own way. It is not irritable and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not [celebrate injustice but celebrates when the truth] wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance... Three things will last forever-Faith, Hope and Love, and the greatest of these is Love.' -1st Corinthians 13:4-7 & 13 (NLT) -John.
