National Scriptures:

  "Love is patient and kind; love is not jealous or boastful; it is not arrogant or rude.
  Love does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrong, but rejoices in the right. 

  Love bears all things, hopes all things, endures all things."

  (I Corinthians 13:4-7)

  "Rejoice Always"

  (I Thessalonians 5:16)
