So…I had an idea. Shocking, right? I figured it was something I could finally use the blog for.

Anyway, a friend of mine was telling me she wanted to learn to love the way God loves. Naturally, I immediately told her to read 1 Corinthians 13, the ultimate definition of love. But then today, (in the shower of course. I have SO many great ideas in the shower and then I forget them immediately. Showers are like pot). I had an idea to try to focus, for two weeks, simply on loving the way God loves. In 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 Paul lists 14/15 aspects of pure love.

4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

So what I plan to do is each day, for two weeks, write down one of these love traits on my hand or my arm or whatever, as a constant reminder for the day to focus on that aspect of love.  I’m calling it “Project Love” because I’m effing creative.

So here goes, tomorrow, May 4, 2011, will be Day1 of Project Love. Starting with “Patience.”

I encourage everyone to try this with me and together maybe we can start loving more like God. 🙂
