On the THIRD Day of Christmas – my True Love gave to me - Three French Hens. Dear to my heart, they represent the three gifts of faith, hope and love. You will find them in 1 Corinthians 13:13 "And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love".
Boy have I experienced the impact of this, in 2008 – you know it's funny, when everything is cruzy and you are in a moderately comfortable position, you really don't think about the impact of these things – but when your natural, physcial circumstances change to the point that they are unrecognizable to their former selves – faith, hope and love are truly what remain….not natural love – that is corrupted by circumstances, flighty 'friends' who are only around when 'it's all good' - and runs only as deep as your purse – but true love is constant and faithful and remains regardless – and we all need that in our lives.
