LOVE IS AT WORK
Love is ever diligent, laboring behind the scenes, rewriting sorrow’s stories into tales of redemption.
Jesus said, “My Father is always at His work to this very day, and I too am working.” –John 5:17
Do not be anxious. He is also mindful of you, and knows your deepest needs.
“In His hand is the life of every creature, and the breath of all mankind.”
The race isn’t always to the swift, but it’s still not a bad idea to choose a really slow competitor!
“Just you and me turtle-boy, from here to the edge of the carpet!”
What is needed to come to God? An open heart, and empty hands.
“Let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings.” –Hebrews 10:22
In my 40-year history as a human, I’ve disliked a lot of people for loving me, but none of them as much as I detested my husband.
I just spent a lot of time wondering, subconsciously, mostly, but sometimes at the front of my brain, how he could be so stupid.
So stubbornly blind to my physical flaws and to my pettiness and my meanness and my rage.
So consistently un-revolted by me.
Because the things to hate about me were legion, and I once could have filled pages enumerating them.
This video provides a beautiful reminder that we can always have a positive impact on people’s lives, even if it’s just a small gesture. Not only can we promote a positive change in someone’s life, but we can also create a ripple effect that makes other’s want to follow in our footsteps. If we all do one small thing and inspire someone else, even if it’s just one person to do the same, just imagine how we could change the world! Always remember that what you do is important and what you do matters.
YOUR LIFE, YOUR SONG

It began with overhearing an unkind comment from a couple of teenagers.
They walked past 75-year-old Leonard Bullock’s home in Pendleton, Oregon and made a comment about how the house should be destroyed due to its poor condition. Union Pacific track inspector Josh Cyganik overheard the comment, as did the house’s owner Leonard Bullock.
