A Little Lovin'

4/30 Today I am thankful for love. For being loved, having loved, and knowing love. “And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.” 1 Corinthians 13:13

4/30 Love
Love…the heavenly gift from our Father. An ability that we received when we were born, one that we can share and still have enough left to give again and again. It is something we should never run out of.  We love people; we love our pets, good food, our hobbies, sports, babies, clothes, cars, talents, careers, on and on; and even ourselves. Love does make the world go round and round and makes us do and say crazy things. Oh that feeling of being in love and loving what we do!
~St. Augustine puts it like this: "Love itself is what is left over when
being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a
fortunate accident. Your mother and I had it, we had roots that grew
towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossoms had
fallen from our branches we found that we were one tree and not two."
   I love this~yep!

The greatest love is deeper than any hole in the ground, truer than any color of blue, and stronger than any giant. It is better than perfection.
Here is the best definition of love:
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, 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 13:4-8 NIV

Today I’m lovin’…

My husband who left me homemade biscuits and sausage that he cooked before work

My precious daughter and her husband who is taking a huge test today with the USCG…

The really cool weather coming our way after the rains

Thinking about the upcoming holidays and smiling

Friends; old ones, new ones, and those to come

My whole family with all their good and bad!

Share a little love today!
