God is LOVE

  “God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him” (1 Jn 4:16).

God is love and HIS love is what makes us want to help others.  He LOVES us.  We are to be Christ-like and love one another.

I hear the birds chirping as they take refuge in my garland.  Thank you Father for reminding us to relax and enjoy the surroundings.   For reminding us to sit every once in a while and just enjoy life. 

My friends take time to sit and relax.  Enjoy a cup of tea.  Enjoy the laughter of children.  Enjoy taking a walk whether thru a walking trail, the mall, or thru your garden.  Smile at someone.  I bet you will make her/his day.  Comfort those that need to be comforted.  Do you know someone who is ill?  Your next door neighbor perhaps or a friend?  I have a neighbor and there are times that I get “this” feeling right when I’m making dinner for my family.  I listen to “this feeling” and make a plate for him so that my husband or one of our boys will take it to him.  What is this feeling?  I think it’s God and God’s love towards us that makes us want to help others.  :) 

I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

You are so right, Sandra. It is a gift to be able to know when you are being prompted by the Holy Spirit to do something for someone and not really know why. You are a very faith filled lady and have many gifts to offer others in the spirit of love.
