This month I've had the joy of sharing some "extra" ordinary glimpses of love ...
- a mother's Love Before Sight about Sandra's adoption process
- the Last Bath about Melanie's love shown to her son, Andrew, as he passed away
- a Stranger's Love from Tara and the love shown by the nurse who cared for her infant son
- not the easy path, as Patty talked about loving in hard relationships
- what they did for love, the way a family honored their father, shared by Nancy
- and Love's Mess Factor, some of the truth about the hardships of loving
- Make a meal for someone in our home who will feel taken care of
- Make a meal for someone not in our home will also feel cared for
- Text a friend who needs to know she's remembered
- Pray for a friend who is facing a challenge or fear
- Instead of muttering about someone's mess, cleaning it up to say "I love you"
- Starting the day with a house that says "Bright, hopeful, supportive," before we go into the world
- Taking the cart back to the store for the older lady in the parking lot
- Saving a diaper coupon for a young mom at church, now that I don't need it
- Taking games to the family shelter, because all children need to play
- Turning off the laptop and making eye contact when I listen to someone
- Putting away my cell phone so I can talk to the cashier
- Getting up to fill my husband's coffee cup, just because I love him
- Shutting the door and sitting down alone for as long as I can hide to listen to my Heavenly Father
John 13:34“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another."
Tomorrow I can't wait to share with you a way that believers in my hometown are "loving" our city. It's exciting! Maybe you'll love your hometown this way, too.
How does love look for you each day?
