"...these three remain: faith, hope and love... and the greatest of these is love." 1 Cor. 13:13
You know when you have a day, (like we had yesterday) where you're just petty... squabbling about things like the mortgages, who made what decision, and how it is affecting our lives, who makes all these decisions? Why are we taking this/them into account? Who's in charge anyway?
You know days like that... when you have stuff you need to discuss and it spirals so quickly downward into a petty shamble of human-ess? Yes, I too am human, and yes, it shows- more times than not.
After all of our pettiness and our making up and our back on track, we heard news of a friend of ours who was in an accident and has 2nd degree burns, his arms, his upper body, and his face... but thankfully survived. That kinda puts things into perspective in this world we live in. Who cares about the mortgage, who cares who made what decisions, who cares? What is important is that you are here... What is important is that we spend out time living and loving each other, and others. My heart is breaking for our friends, their lives are forever changed. They will live with this forever, they will live another level of love... we will live another level of love because of them.
Teach us to love, to truly love. To put love above all else, people above all else, other's above all else. The most important thing we have in the world is each other- how easily we forget that...
My prayer today is that love abounds in your heart, your home, with everyone you meet, and spills out everywhere you go.
Share the love,
Please send prayer this way for our friends, they will need all of the love and support they can get <3
