Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 1 Corinthians 13:4-7
I can barely see my car tires; snow is piling up and the wind drift makes it even worse. It's very cold outside! We almost escaped the brutal winter, but slow as it may be; it has arrived!
I write imagining how cold it may be outside-- you see I am looking out the window. I have not even changed from my pajamas and its noon time.
Today as the wind blows and the snow is slowly changing to freezing rain my husband and my son gear up to battle the elements that await them outside. As I look out the window I see love in action! I'm thankful for my husband and my son who have ventured out so that as my feet go across the walkway tomorrow, the path will be safe and secure. My car is brushed off and warmed up. The walk is salted and my concerns have faded into the hands of the men in my life.
Perhaps you are also experiencing the blessing of someone cleaning your car or your walkway. Perhaps they went outside to get the wood for the fireplace; don't forget to express your love for them! You forgot to get the bread and milk and they volunteered...don't forget to say thank you.
If you are the one outside cleaning snow, freezing your hands and having the wind whip your face...Thank You!! February is the month where love will be highlighted. Don't forget to express your heart to those around you; those who serve you; those who are extremely important in our lives and we at times neglect to let them know how much we love and appreciate them.
Yes, I was inside nice and warm with the kitty cats. Oh, I made sure that when my heroes returned, they arrived to a warm meal. Late lunch together...thank you Lord for my husband, thank you for my son!
Love is an action!
God bless you!~Liz
