Sitting here with a list of ‘to dos’ which did not include blogging today. Several writings in the works, but this little heart is bursting with words and feelings and fondness and words…so, here it is.
Overcome. Overwhelmed. You in the front row, balcony, aisle seat and outer edges who lay down self everyday. Who risk it all to be real, to show and share the Love in your hearts, willingly- openly vulnerable. Without shouting or picketing. Quietly, often without recognition. Behind the scenes. Season after Season.
This wells up from a brief phone conversation with a long time friend who is doing just that right this moment. If I told you, you wouldn’t believe me. Her selfless love will impact and change generations to come. Some rescue animals. Others rescue children, men and women from the streets. Restoring marriages, finances, the grief stricken. Listening to a brokenheart. Sharing coffee with a lonely. Friend D who shoveled my walk and driveway. To her no big deal, to me huge. People who pray for total strangers in other countries. People who go to the nations to share real life, real love. An email just now asking for prayer to be shining examples. Young and Old who mentor, guide and raise up others. Gently.
You are Heroes. Allow me to encourage you to realize the great impact you have. ..As the email sums it up~May we love on them and be shining examples of Christ’s Love in and through our lives by living more so than saying it.
How are you paying it forward?
Until next time, this is your invitation to join me in Living More and saying less.
Love IS a Verb. Love IS Action. Love Is Unity
Remember~ALWAYS be kinder than you need to be. Please.
