    Hello,
    W- Jesus loves you, so do I...Amen

    T- Being thats it Valentime day I wrote this;

    Love is discipline
    Love is patient
    Love is not self-seeking
    Love is not angered
    Love rejoices in the truth
    Love is always hope.
    Love never fails.

    terry drake: As promised. I read the poem once again; and when I struggle with a verse it throws my timing off in the read. i struggles with the fumes and life's perfume. After giving it a second look I like the phrase despite the fact I have never thought in those terms.
