Love is…

In honor of Valentine’s Day: 1 Corinthians tells us “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, 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. Love never fails.” (1 COR 4-8, NIV)

Great stuff. But on a lighter note, what about music? Looking at my iPod, I found 21 individual songs whose titles start with “Love is….” Check out the occasional YouTube links..
