Ann – A Friend of Jesus 2013

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. ~ Romans 8:28 ~

Love

Walk in the direction of love not fear. Look at things in another perspective. A life is the ability to love beyond yourself, extend yourself when change comes. ~ Charles P ~

Hello friends (smile) Love brings possibilities to many things. (smile) Love is a beautiful thing to behold, especially when love comes from within. Love is the first spiritual fruit. We must love ourself before we can truly receive love from others. (shock face)

When we truly know the love of God, in our heart, love abounds in our life. Love conquers fear. Love can over look things and stuff. Love can over look differences. Love adapts. Love respects X, Y and Z’s choices, especially when different from our own. Love can bless others, even when they are unkind.

Love brings faith and trust in God for all things.

Sometimes, love gives us courage. I’ve learned that love is being spiritually whole and emotionally healthy to enjoy life regardless of anything or anyone else. It’s an inside blessings! Staying focus on what’s important helps to let stuff go. This was a long process to learn, nonetheless, I share it to help someone know that every person we encounter contributes to our ability to love. (smile)
