Love Love Love
Tonight I sat here at my little desk and watched the memorial service for Christopher Laurie, son of Pastor Greg Laurie, and wept like a little baby. It is so inspiring to see the love for Christ this family has, even in their time of sorrow. It reminds me that tomorrow is never promised. It reminds me to live each day as if it were my last. It reminds me to love my husband like never before. I reminds me to take the time to rub my kids' backs before bed, it may be the last back rub. It reminds me to go to work each day as if I am going to work with God himself. It is so easy to get wrapped up in our day to day events and not stop to take the few extra minutes to show some extra love. Watching the service has reminded me of how important family and friends are. How important it is to be a part of a church and church family; to serve God and His church with the gifts He has given us.To let those around us see God's love shining through us by our acts of love, words of love, touches of love. Jesus said" and the greatest of these is Love." Tonight I am reminded to Love. Love like I have never loved before. Tonight I sit and think (only for a second) did we make the right choice to move to Texas? Then, I think back at all the blessings from God in this transition and I know that we were sent by Him . He has great plans for us here and will give us many opportunities to love His church and those around us. Tonight I close with this: To all my family and friends, I love you. I may not say it as often as I should, but I love you. I pray for you and your families and ask God's blessings upon you always. Love one another as He first loved us. Good night!
