Love Is...

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.

—1 Corinthians 13:4-8

Love is: patient, kind, honorable, humble, etc. Duly noted, 1 Corinthians. But what of its timeliness? What happens when a person falls in love after they're locked up? Lovers separated by steel bars and barb wire go to great lengths to nurture their romantic relationships. And when it comes to tying the knot, they encounter even greater challenges.
