  1. So beautiful and from the heart. We all age, in years, in pain, in loss, in trauma. And yet, the love certainly is that one thing, that never grows old! It is fresh and new everyone, enticing us on. Praise God, for the gift of loving! Love is the through line…all the way to Heaven!

  2. I’ve been thinking about this topic a lot lately since I am 61 and my adult children have all chosen not to follow Jesus. Although we raised them in a Christian home, we did not communicate His love to them in a real way. We were so busy with life -working and homeschooling that we did not reach out to care for others in practical ways. I hope this will encourage those that still have kids at home to remember they are watching what you do and how you show love not just to them but to others. I know God can work all things for His glory and our growth so I have hope. After 40 years of being a Christian He is still teaching me. Thank you for such a great reminder that even though we might be struggling ourselves we can still show God’s love in practical ways of caring for others.

  3. Yes my Sisters in Christ, my gray hair lets me know that I have graduated to the midlife phase of being a girl. I never thought it would be like this. It happened so fast. My three daughters are all of a sudden grownups. Where has the time gone?

    I know for sure that I worked overtime trying to be the young wife that I should be and then the young mother that everyone was watching me become. Then I even tried to hold my marriage together while my spouse was trying to find himself. Now that journey is still going on and I have given that outcome to the Lord.

    Now I do remember thinking that the adults had it all together when I was in grammar school. They were just doing their best to make good decisions for their children and their families. I understand so much more now. Since I have taken a lot of steroids for Rheumatoid Arthritis, I understand gaining unwanted extra weight. I’m sorry I could not see more compassion as I was growing up for people like me (Overweight), (Depressed), (Tired and Overworked), (Traumatized from Hurt and Brokenness), (Lack of Direction), (Afraid of Tomorrow) and (Feeling Overwhelmed). Yes, I really understand so much better.

    Lord, Thank You For Teaching Me To Love Others Like You Love Me.


    Your Sister in Christ

  4. Grace,

    This reminds me of the song “The Proof of Your Love” by King & Country. Here’s the chorus:
    So let my life be the proof, the proof of your love
    Let my love look like you, and what you’re made of How you lived, how you died
    Love is sacrifice So let my life be the proof The proof of your love.

    True love is sacrifice. We give of ourselves to show others Christ’s love for them. Christ showed us love by offering His only son to die for our sins. We should love like Jesus. I was able to do that Saturday by picking up needed medical supplies & delivering them for a friend. She fell broke elbow, but now back hurts & has degenerative disk disease. I spent time talking with her also. I will call other friends or take them out to eat. Trying always to shower this country with God’s love.

    Blessings 🙂
