“But not so with you.”

What is it that you reach for? How do you compare yourself with others? Maybe with appearance, home, relationships, role, position, involvement?

Our family has moved twice in the last few years, to a new place where I was not known. I have felt the temptation to be known for how I look, what I can do, and who I know – and been keenly aware of my lack of involvement and connections.

As I drove down the road and stopped into Target, a variety of thankfulnesses came to mind: “Thank You for the errands I can get done.  Thank You I can walk. Thank You for money to buy groceries. Thank You for clean water.” These are all little, everyday things in my life. But they would not be so little if I didn’t have them! With this burst of thankfulness came a burst of energy. My day is full of good gifts! IMG_20171212_101610755_HDR (2)

Walk in Love

Walking.  Taking steps.  Moving forward.  As we enter a new year, I want to invite you to join me in taking steps to walk in love more fully!  God asks us to “walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and a sacrifice to God” (Ephesians 5:2).  Last week we talked about choosing to Listen to the Voice of Love.  We receive love from God.  As we receive His love, we express His love to others.
