Wuv.... Tru Wuv...

"... true love 'beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things' (1 Corinthians 13:7). Once again, that is ultimately a description of Christ's love- He is the great example of one who bore and believed and hoped and endured. We are invited to do the same in our courtship and in our marriage to the best of our ability. Bear up and be strong. Be hopeful and believing. Some things in life we have little or no control over. These have to be endured. Some disappointments have to be lived with in love and in marriage. These are not things anyone wants in life, but sometimes they come. And when they come, we have to bear them; we have to believe; we have to hope for an end to such sorrows and difficulty; we have to endure until things come right in the end."

- Jeffrey R. Holland, "How Do I Love Thee?", BYU 1999-2000 Speeches
