My beloved friends, let us continue to love each other since love comes from God. Everyone who loves is born of God and experiences a relationship with God. The person who refuses to love doesn’t know the first thing about God, because God is love—so you can’t know him if you don’t love. This is how God showed his love for us: God sent his only Son into the world so we might live through him. This is the kind of love we are talking about—not that we once upon a time loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to clear away our sins and the damage they’ve done to our relationship with God. 1 John 4:7-10 MSG
Happy Friday! I can hardly believe how fast this week has gone by. It’s a glorious day here. The sun is shining, the flowers are blooming and spring has sprung. Next week is Spring Break for the local schools and the children are all excited to have a break. Some are going somewhere fun. Some are hanging out at home. Remember to be mindful this year of children being out of school. College students are out too. Don’t forget that we were all young at one time. Be patient and forgiving. Also remember to leave earlier than normal to allow time for heavier traffic. It’s a good practice to develop daily for ourselves and others.
This is a great time to spread God’s love. Take a deep breath and think of ways you can give back when you are aggravated because of longer lines or heavy traffic. There is always something we can do and it doesn’t have to be costly. It can just be a kind gesture. When you arrive home from work, do something nice for your spouse. There is just no end to the number of things you can do with little effort.
Have a great weekend. God bless you.
