Love...

In yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, I asked that you pray for my family.

If you prayed, I'm glad you did.  May God bless you for your prayer.  For my family truly needs it.

After our worship service on Sunday, we had a gathering like we usually have once a month.  A pot-luck luncheon!

I must admit, it was a delicious meal to me.  And, to others who sat with me!  :)

Near the end of my church family luncheon time, my granddaughter A's Sunday school teacher, L approached me.

Several times over the past few weeks, she asked me why my granddaughter, A wasn't with me.  Each time, I had to let her know that I couldn't explain.  Every time, she accepted my response.

However, about a week ago, L let me know that she had a gift.  A gift, that she hadn't been able to give to my granddaughter, A... due to her not being at Sunday school.

Near the end of our church family luncheon, L handed me the gift for A.

This almost made me cry.

It brought tears to my eyes, then.  And, again while I wrote this LwL entry.  In fact, it made me cry.

Not just because I was sad that my granddaughter, A wasn't with me.

It made my heart feel good... knowing that A, has been loved.  Loved, by my church family, in many ways.

Love, is so very important.

Just as we read, in Mark 12:30-31, "And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.
31 And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these."

Yes, we need to love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all they soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength. 

We also need to do what was told of us to do, as another commandment.  We need to love thy neighbour as thyself.

Just as my church family has done to me.  And, to my granddaughter, A.

How grateful I am that God brought us together, as a church family.

How grateful I am that God has shown me love, by doing that. 

How grateful I am that there is actually love given to my church family by me, and by my granddaughter, A.  And, received from them, also.

For this, I am truly happy and thankful.  And, always will be.

Thank You, Lord!


Until next time...
