Archives Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.

Love Like Giants Purpose and Beliefs
The purpose of "Love Like Giants" is to spread the virtues of "doing Love" at home, with family, at work and in the community. We accomplish this with projects directed at intentionally “doing” love, music, performance and artistic expression, education and training.
We believe that when people earnestly and intentionally seek to be a doer of Love, far reaching and lasting positive change is a natural consequence, both for the practitioners of Love and those around them. Individuals who blend intentional acts of Love into their daily life, over time, will experience: improved relationships, a heightened sense of purpose, an inclination toward optimism and happiness, less conflict and greater influence on the organizations and people around them- regardless of status, title or formal authority, and ultimately, a deeper understanding of the loving nature of God.

March 6, 2014; What is the Lesson in This?
The church I attend had a talk on Abram, known later in his life as Abraham. A point of discussion was the time between the promises God made to him and when they came to fruition, some that were not even realized in Abraham’s lifetime. I’m sure in that vast span of years between the promises and the tangible evidence of them, there were things in Abraham’s life that made him ask "why". When we experience something difficult or experience pain, we often ask “why”, but there is a difference between shaking our fists at God and raging, “why”, and asking in the spirit of “how am I meant to grow from this?”
Like it or not, there will be times and situations in which we are not meant to learn anything other than how to behave and keep the faith while we go through them, and the lesson may be more of being forced to a decision than something we must learn. We can decide to be at peace with things, cope with things that make us uncomfortable without behaving badly, and continue to grow in our relationship with God in spite of hard situations. We can make up our mind to stay cheerful, or at least not complain, and continue trying to do every right thing we can even if our marriage, job, out of control child, health or financial situation doesn’t improve; there are some things we will have to live with no matter how we respond. We decide our behaviors and choose the attitudes we allow to take residence in our lives. For Abraham, he decided to trust God and believe what He told him in spite of challenges and impossible odds. He didn’t live through the hard spots perfectly, but he persistently kept deciding to keep the faith throughout his life.
