Spring, Easter, Amazing Grace + Jesus.

It's spring. I write this and giggle a little as fluffy white snowflakes swirl softly to the snow covered ground. It's Spring. I tell myself. It's Spring! My heart believes it, because Easter is coming, that special time of the year when I celebrate the resurrection of Jesus.

You may not believe in this, and that's ok... I do. And it is a heavy, exciting time of the year for me. It's filled with hope and expectation, anticipation and gratitude. I try my hardest to follow the words of Jesus. Even if you see Him only as a man- He was a great man, who spoke of love, and love, and more love. His mandate is to love. So ya, I love Him.  (do I fail miserably at loving (amongst many other things)? yes-daily,  and not just once, but more times that I have fingers and toes to count on).
But am I ok with that... yup... most days.

Share the love today,
M.

Incase you ever wondered what Jesus did say about love... here is a great place to start :)


Matthew 5:43-48 

As Found in:The Message (MSG)

43-47 “You’re familiar with the old written law, ‘Love your friend,’ and its unwritten companion, ‘Hate your enemy.’ I’m challenging that. I’m telling you to love your enemies. Let them bring out the best in you, not the worst. When someone gives you a hard time, respond with the energies of prayer, for then you are working out of your true selves, your God-created selves. This is what God does. He gives his best—the sun to warm and the rain to nourish—to everyone, regardless: the good and bad, the nice and nasty. If all you do is love the lovable, do you expect a bonus? Anybody can do that. If you simply say hello to those who greet you, do you expect a medal? Any run-of-the-mill sinner does that.
48 “In a word, what I’m saying is, Grow up. You’re kingdom subjects. Now live like it. Live out your God-created identity. Live generously and graciously toward others, the way God lives toward you.”

Mark 12:28-31The Message (MSG)

The Most Important Commandment

28 One of the religion scholars came up. Hearing the lively exchanges of question and answer and seeing how sharp Jesus was in his answers, he put in his question: “Which is most important of all the commandments?”
29-31 Jesus said, “The first in importance is, ‘Listen, Israel: The Lord your God is one; so love the Lord God with all your passion and prayer and intelligence and energy.’ And here is the second: ‘Love others as well as you love yourself.’ There is no other commandment that ranks with these.”
