Good Morning.....

This life is full of ups and downs. There are moments when it seems as if you're touching the hem of heaven because they're so dazzling. And others when it seems you stand on the brink of hell because they're so heart wrenching.

We can tend to feel far away from God in both. When times are good, we forget how much we need Him. When times are hard, we wonder why He has forsaken us. And yet both of... those responses are only our humanity talking.

Neither height nor depth...will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:39

God's affection for us is the same at the highest and lowest moments of our lives. The heights of success and the depths of despair cannot separate us from Him. His love is the one constant we can count on no matter what.

Take comfort in this..... Whether this is your best day on earth or one of your worst, you will never be alone or unloved. Not even for a moment
Hugs...Love & Blessings

 } "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 13:4-8b
.:: WOW.....
Let's be honest. None of us loves perfectly.
Thankfully, our gracious God knows that we are incapable of loving others on our own. The only way to truly love is to let Him love through us. When we come to Him, knowing we are broken and sinful, we will find grace to be changed! Thank you Lord!

Have an awesome weekend everyone!

(Luke 12:29-31)
