Abundance of the Heart

This is one of the books that I purchased Saturday at the Sunday School Conference. It is such a delightful book. It is full of wisdom and scripture regarding the fruits of the spirit. The artwork is just beautiful, too. If you like lovely books, I recommend this one highly. I wanted to share one of the excerpts from the chapter on love:

"It is love in old age, no longer blind, that is true love. For love's highest intensity doesn't necessarily mean its highest quality. Glamour and jealousy are gone; and the ardent caress, no longer needed, is valueless compared to the reassuring touch of a trembling hand. Passersby commonly see little beauty in the embrace of young lovers on a park bench, but the understanding smile of an old wife to her hsuband is one of the loveliest things in the world." Booth Tarkington
