Thoughtful Thursday




“Love is patient, love is kind.  It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It is not rude, 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.  Love never fails.”  1 Corinthians 16:4-8

Often I feel as if I fail in this area more than I succeed...  But my daily prayer is for this beautiful and unconditional love, for it is a love like this that sets us apart as sons and daughters of Christ the Lord and points others to Him…  Let us strive to show the love of Jesus to everyone, including our family members and close friends, for that is how others will see that we serve the One and Only Lord and King!

~ By this everyone will know that you are My disciples, if you love one another.  John 13:35 ~

Love makes the world go around. Some of my closer friends I do really feel like a love them-- in a brotherly and sisterly way, of course. People may think it's weird, but hey, they are like brothers and sisters to me, and in a biblical sense, they truly are.
