I was told today the best way to reflect on our life, actions, and cares for others is to reflect on LOVE. And one of the best ways to reflect on LOVE is to read 1 Corinthians 13. Then to ask yourself what three things can you do today to reflect this reading it way that is meaningful to you. Sounds like good words of wisdom and a helpful push. Thought I would share with you in case it helps. Enclosed is a piano piece composed to support this reflection. Enjoy and God Bless you. Keith
1 Corinthians 13 New International Version 13
If I speak in the tongues[a] of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 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. 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.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

Sometimes in our heart we feel a prompting and an invitation to take Path A or B. We all heard it said before, follow your heart. Or pray and then work your prayers. In life sometimes it's hard to know what to do and we long for clarity on what is the right action or approach to take in situations. Should I do X or Y? This song is about giving this longing, questioning, and seeking over to God. Seeking his will and asking for his guidance so we can do what we're called to do and walk the right path. What choice or path will lead to the most joy and peace for yourself and others? May this meditative song about asking, discerning, and seeking bless your path and support your aims in doing what is right. Wishing you the best!

Stand By Me
The song "Stand By Me" was originally the name of a gospel hymn written by the Philadelphia minister Charles Albert Tindley in 1905. His hymn became popular in churches throughout the American South and was recorded by various gospel acts in the 1950s. The song became famous when Ben E. King performed it and the song was later placed in the hit movie, "Stand By Me".
The song has a message of love and standing by one another through any dark nights and how we're always ok when standing by our love whether family member or our love for God and his protection. Here is an acoustic performance duet style. Hope you like. Enjoy!
