       True love is a fascinating thing and has attributes that are not always easy to explain or understand. Attempting to describe the type of love that God places in the heart of His children so we could understand it better, the Apostle Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians, Chapter 13, among other things, that “it always perseveres”, “never fails”, and “it keeps no record of wrongs.” If the last point is correct, and it is, we must assume that the opposite applies, that love keeps record of all good things. Since God’s love resides deep in the heart, to me, it means that the heart has the ability to remember things that even the sharpest of minds can forget. A living example of that truth is the accompanying video clip my son, Nick, sent me some time back about an Alzheimer’s patient by the name of Melvin. After you see the clip, perhaps you will better understand why Paul also wrote: “And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight” and why the Bible advises us in Proverbs 4:23, “Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.” As in Melvin’s case, if and when you come to the place where your mind has long forgotten names and past significant events, your heart will still remember.
