Love and Kindness

6 12 2017

“I have loved you, my people, with an everlasting love. With unfailing love I have drawn you to myself.  Jeremiah  31:3

With an open heart I can receive the goodness that surrounds me.  The blessings of family, faith and community can shape my days and bring joy.  I am open to each gift from God, the work of my hands, the kindness of a neighbor or the courtesy of an open door from a complete stranger.  It is easy to focus on what’s not right in the world around us.  But if we look closer to what is near us, we can see all is not lost.  God’s love is still present.  It resides in me and in you.  It emanates from our everyday actions.  Our actions help the world to see Jesus’ love more clearly.  We can open our heart to Him and to gift of His people all around us.
