Free Spirit Butterfly "July 14, 1964 - ...."
"A beloved daughter, sister, mother, friend, neighbor and Servant..."
Prayerfully, when that time comes for me...the "farewell" here on earth...
Prayerfully, the ones who knew me will have known me to be a person who cared with my whole heart. Someone who truly lived a life of faith, selflessness, compassion and love...amongst other things.
Hearing that Jesus wept is one of the most profound verses in the Bible. At least in my opinion. And last night, while reading my devotion...I happened upon another verse that just held my attention for quite some time...
~ Colossians 3:14...put on love,..."
That is indeed one of the most sweetest verses of poetry I've ever read.
What would happen if we all put on love? I can testify that when you do...with no motives whatsoever...it comes back repeatedly and unexpectedly. Real Love comes from a place of wholeness and healing. And when we give love, share love, send love, protect love, receive love and put on love...it transforms us into new beings and it will also change the trajectory of our lives. It undoubtedly brings a peace unimaginable and it is something that is wonderfully and spiritually out of our control.
With this passing year's sadness and despair, death and destruction, shootings and hurricanes, disasters and suicides...just to name a few...lets look at our lives and see where love is lacking.
Put on love so that prayerfully, when that time comes for YOU...the "farewell" here on earth...your "dash" will have had meaning.
Love in Christ for the very best in the coming year(s)
