Loving One Another

Good Morning, Dear Friends and Prayer Partners! This is the day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it! The sun is shining and the air is very cool, so we are back to normal! Yay! It was 53 when I crawled out of bed, but warmer than that in the house, I am happy to say. Anyway, I turned on the heat until the house warmed up. In a couple days we are supposed to warm up in the high seventies...crazy weather!

Well, the computer man is coming at noon. so I have to get things ready for him. Maybe he can clear up all the issues I have with all the pop ups and stuff that keeps showing up as I use the PC.

I knocked my favorite little juice glass off the counter this morning, and had a lot of pieces to sweep up. It was really an old jelly glass, but had bright red apples and other fruit painted on it and I liked it. I had had it for many years, and now it's gone. Sniff. I have another glass same size, but it is not cheerful. (Also a jelly glass.)

I have already seen a bluejay hopping through the hedge next door, so the birds are out and about, probably happy that the rain has gone, as we all are. God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

1 John 4:16-21
We know how much God loves us, and we have put
our trust is him.
God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and
God lives in them. Ans as we live in God, our love grows
 more perfect. So we will not be afraid on the day of
judgement, but we can face him with confidence because
we are like Christ here in this world.

Such love has no fear because perfect love expels all
fear. If we are afraid, it is for fear in judgment, and this
shows that his love has not been perfected in us. We love
each other as a result of his loving us first.

If someone says, "I love God," but hates a Christian brother
or sister, that person is a liar; for if we don't love people
we can see, how can we love God whom we have not seen?
And God himself has commanded that we must love not
only him but our Christian brothers and sisters, too.

I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!

Love and hugs,
