Imperfect

Who is the person in your life who can do no wrong? Describe this person and tell us why you hold them in such high esteem.

I’m not sure I would like a human person who can do no wrong. A perfect person? Insufferable. I need a human been like me who can understand me because he or she can make mistakes and knows what does mean to ask for forgiveness. I need people who can say I’ve been down there like you and I survived. I got up again, and again. Just like you. You’re not a monster because of your mistakes. You’re just human.

I don’t need perfection. I need love. So my precious ones are my loved ones. Not perfect but the best I can imagine. I love them so much I can’t imagine my life without them. But I love them as they are.  Not perfect. my ideal of love is the one St. Paul describes I his epistle to the Corinthians:

Love is patient,

love is kind and is not jealous;

love does not brag and is not arrogant,

does not act unbecomingly;

it does not seek its own,

is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered,

does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth;

bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

Love never fails
