Love . . .

God is love.
Whoever lives in love lives in God,
and God lives in him.

1John 4:16

Want to know what God wants you to do with your life?


Love Him.
Love others.
Love yourself.

Doing those three things fulfills every desire God has for you. Loving well means getting to know others well. It means being aware of their needs, their wounds, their strengths, and their weaknesses -- knowing what makes them smile. This includes knowing both God and yourself as well.

How you express your love is unique. Just like there has never been another person exactly like you, there has also never been another expression of love quite like yours. Be creative. Be generous. Be persistent. Be forgiving. Love with the same enthusiasm with which God loves you.

I have found the paradox that if I love until it hurts,
then there is no hurt, but only more love.
~Mother Teresa~
