only with God's love

With this being the big LOVE weekend, there's plenty of phrases about love, poetry about love, and Scripture verses about love abounding everywhere you go!
In honor of this loving holiday which will be celebrated tomorrow, may I share my hope and encouragement for you as I consider the topic....

"May the Lord direct your hearts into God's love and Christ's perseverance." ~ Second Thessalonians 3:5

For it is quite easy to love those who are near and dear to our heart.  Loving them easily flows no matter what the cost or sacrifice.  Yet there are those who pass through our lives who do not fit into that category and who pose a real challenge when it comes to lovingLove does not come easily with them as we lean on our own strength and it is only through God's strength and His love that we can persevere to love them.  If you need more tips and encouragement to live out such a love, read through the book of First John.  It's short, only five chapters, but speaks powerfully on the topic of love.

From me to you on this weekend of loving others, consider yourself hugged, dear reader!
