Because I'm trying to learn this myself....

I gotta share some love with y'all today because it is Valentines Day! So....I'm spreading the love to each of you.

I also want you to think about who needs some real love today that might be a little hard for you to share on this Valentines Day! Hmmmmm.....

John 13:34 says, "A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another."

As I taught our 4th and 5th graders at church last night, we talked about how hard it is to love the difficult people in our lives.....so, begin to ask God to tender your heart and let someone know that you are "ok" with them. Go ahead and be nice to those difficult people in your life!

That scripture does not say "love the nice people only."

So....love one another today in the Name of Jesus!! And, may you all be richly blessed through His command.

Have a great day friends. My love to each of you in the sweet, loving Name of Jesus!

Oh how right you are Fran! It is so hard to love those difficult people in our lives sometimes!

One of my favorite scriptures is:

"Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up." Galations 6:9

I think of that when it is difficult to "do good" and love those who can be difficult in my life.

Thanks for the word!
Love you,
Charity

Oh if that's isn't a verse I have to remember all the time. God loves us and we aren't always so lovable either! :-)
Happy Valentines!

It is so easy to love really nice & sweet people. GOd has been placing in my path some of the people who had treated me so poorly with all the church stuff. I have been so nice to them and it is so refreshing as if a burden has been lifted. TO be mean or angry ties me to the enemy and I don't want any part of that!
Thanks for the reminder!
Love ya,
Kim

Oh ouch...preach it! What a good reminder. It's truly so much harder to love those that might seem unlovable in your life. Thank you for the great reminder & Happy Valentines to you! It's been a treasure getting to know you & read your blogs!

amen! What good is it if we only love those who are easy to love?!?!? I so continually need to love by faith and not by feeling

I blog so you can get a glimpse into my life as wife, mom of 3 boys, and someone who simply wants to bless others along the way. Have fun and be sweet :)
