On a more serious note…

I know this blog is supposed to be for humor but thought I would share a poem my grandfather wrote as it is in keeping with some things I think all of us have been mulling over recently.

The Forever Kind Of Love

Lord grant me the forever kind

That see the faults, but doesn’t mind;

The kind that says, I love you still

If not by feelings, then by will;

The kind that’s like thine own love, Lord —

That seeks to serve, not earn reward;

The kind that sees the best in each–

That seeks to pray for, not to preach.

And when old age should take it’s toll,

Love, look beyond and love the soul;

Be Thou our anchor and our joy,

A steadfast love time can’t destroy;

A love made choice to always stay,

To be there til our dying day.

And when death comes to break earth’s spell;

Lord may you tell us, “Your love will.”

“Love beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.” (I Corinthians 13:7)
