1 John 4:7 (NLT)

Dear friends, let us continue to love one another, for love comes from God. Anyone who loves is a child of God and knows God.

An old friend of mine, Gerald, did upholstery on the side.  He made me a cover for my Bible and I asked him to sign it.  He wrote inside the piece he had crafted:  “God is love.”
