I don't know why I haven't thought about blogging it, but we'll just pick up where we are at currently. It's been really great to take this passage one descriptor at a time, one week at a time.
Every Sunday we write the next one on the chalkboard in our living room, and then throughout the week we write things that we've heard, verses we've read, songs, you name it, on the board. At the end of the week it's been really uplifting to read all we've written and then erase it, and start on the next one.

If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.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.8 Love never fails.
