But the Greatest of these is Love…, by Beverly Hicks Burch

“And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. ~ I Cor. 13:13  NIV ~

This month marks the 60th wedding anniversary of my parents. That’s a milestone in and of itself, but it’s also a rarity these days. I often wonder about the future and how many 50th and 60th anniversaries we’ll see celebrated.

My parents have raised three daughters, one a disabled child that has lived at home since birth…something that went against the tide in the days when children like her were institutionalized.

They’ve also seen a lot of changes in the world in those 60 years. We should honor the elders in our society and not push them aside…we will be them one day…sooner than we realize.

During those changes and trials I saw my parents persevere with faith, hope and love…and the greatest was love…
