Just Love.

Sometimes showing love to someone right where they are is all they need. I think we get so caught up in the knee-jerk reaction to provide an answer. Or "preaching a sermon", if you will. Lord knows we have all had our share of those. It's OK to not have an answer. It's OK to …

Amazing Love

And I will put this third into the fire, and refine them as one refines silver, and test them as gold is tested. They will call upon my name, and I will answer them. I will say, ‘They are my people’; and they will say, ‘The Lord is my God’. - Zechariah 13:9  "I never …

Kindness

My calendar said this morning: Your own soul is nourished when you are kind. ~Proverbs 11:17 Kindness matters. Consistency matters. People matter. How much better do we feel inside when we aren't spewing negativity-s about ourselves or other people?

Loving The Unlovely

".....stop allowing the enemy to set the agenda for your responses to those who are obnoxious, unloving and unbelieving. There is no defense against love.

What Is Love?

If your faith is the same as mine, then you believe that God Himself is Love. So what does that love truly look like? What does it mean for us personally? I came across this list that explains some of the attributes of that love & added my own personal-ness : It's abounding. (Exodus 34:6) -- it's more …

Ramblings On Friends, Strangers, Stabs, Specks & Planks

I am very blessed to have a large group of what I love to call my eclectic friends. They are different creeds, colors, orientations, temperaments - & I adore them all. I have been frowned upon by some of the company I keep. In generic response - I never read anything that said only love …
