As we gear up for holiday shopping, and decorating, and cooking, and baking . . . let's also throw ourselves into loving each other and giving Thanks for our gifts. The gift of home, family and health. E and I are going away this weekend and my kids are beside themselves to go to their Grandma's house. I could easily have thrown them a wave them this morning and let their sleepover bliss carry them through until I see them again.
But I didn't.
I stopped them both in their tracks (much to The Athlete's chagrin) and kissed them firmly and said "I love you like crazy".
If the Lord decides that I won't get the chance to see them again I want to be sure that is what I leave them with.
Are you leaving your mark on the world?
Is it a good one?
Go love someone more than they want to be loved and have a great weekend.
"Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain."1 Corinthians 15: 58
