Love, believe, hope, endure...

Today is a dreary Fall day, so it was a good day to stay in & help my sister with a little project. I am at my parent's in the Thumb. The last 2 days I helped with moving/unpacking things at my sister's house... still not quite ready to move in completely, but getting closer (6 months today).

Renee is a vendor at a scrapbook retreat this weekend, which I am going to also, so I helped get these little nugget boxes made for little gifts for attendees. I am looking forward to it & I know my sis can use the time to just "be". (sorry the picture isn't the best)

When Luke & I got married, one of the verses we used was I Corinthians 13:13 -
"Now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love." I was reading about this chapter... what is this love?... do I show this love?... am I letting God's love flow through me to be used to help others in pain? I have to admit I get so caught up in my own life "stuff" that I am sure I don't have a clue how many opportunities I am missing to show love.
In verse 7 of that chapter it says, "Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things." Have you ever been so down or in emotional pain that you lost your hope... you wondered if you could go on? Maybe when there are people in that state that we come in contact with... those are the times we need to be ready to have enough love to believe, hope & endure for those people... is that what God's love is?
with a grateFUL HEART, carin

I may be partial and all, being that I am a PFF girl and we have to all stick together. But my friend, you are full of love. It radiates off of you. Those who are around you feel it. You are such a "light"...
Love ya
