Verse of the day...

3 I thank my God every time I remember you. 4 In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy 5 because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, 6 being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. (Philippians 1:3-6)

A new day...........

Fresh snow covered the ground this morning. Not but about an inch or less... but enough that it creates two emotions in me... 1) how ugly it is as I impress upon my son who I love so very much... to drive careful to school protecting himself and his brothers who I also cherish!  2) how beautiful it is.... a thin blanket that God laid out .... covering us in His love.  Yes... for all of us to slow down... be careful.... and pay attention.   The hugs that last a little longer because physically the warmth feels good... but what you really feel is the emotional warmth.... Love!   Which God is... He is LOVE.

God gives us our emotions .... we are to FEEL all of them.  Anger... Fear... Sadness.... Love.....etc. 
This week has been an array of all the emotions God has given us... for me.   The thing is ... I need to only Live in one of them.   LOVE!   Love for my God which spills out to everything and everyone else.  My love for Him gives me the strength and faith to keep going.   My love for Him allows me to forgive everyone and move on.   
In return.... His love for me allows me to be so very Thankful!
