This is an old story

A story of love

A love uncommon to many

But known by many

A love we’ve read about

A pure and holy love

Love divine

Love unique

Love from above

Just the way love should be

The true definition of love

It is a different tale

A tale of reality

A tale of direction

Direction from God

Direction to a life of joy

A life filled with peace

Prints from the Holy Book

Are you curious?

Do you want to know about this love?

It can be found in life’s manual

So how should we love one another?

It is already written

It is in his word

Pure wisdom from the scriptures

Now let’s see how it is defined

Defined for all to comprehend

Love is patient

Love is kind

Love is not envious

Love does not brag

Love is not puffed up

Love is not rude

Love is not self-serving

Love is not easily angered

Love is not resentful

Love is not glad about injustice

Love rejoices in the truth

Love bears all things

Love believes all things

Love hopes all things

Love endures all things

And finally,

Love never ends

So before you say I do,

Before you merge as one

Before you exchange your vows

Know these things

Eat these words

Let it abide in your heart

Memorize these words

Understand these words

And practise these words

Be ready to give your best

In order to receive the best

Before you say I do

Say “I will do” to the word of God

Say “I do” to his commands

Fill your home with peace

And live a life of bliss
