Love In Action

Thankful Thursday’s morning car ride with my son led to conversing about morning routines. We each have our way of getting awake and preparing for the day ahead. But I shared a piece of information as a reminder to him. Each morning while we are still sleeping, my husband goes around to each sleeping person and gives them a light kiss.

This is love in action. It usually happens while we are unaware of it.  But it is a sign of care, value, and worthiness exchanged between the both the giver and the recipient. Small actions of attention such as an unaware kiss, a squeeze of support, or eye contact with a smile hold huge impact in the edifying of each other. And sometimes a verbal reminder of those actions of love help us to be fully present in receiving them.

Hebrews 10:24

24 And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds,

Blessings!

The Blossom of Our Heart

Thankful Thursday greets us with the warmer weather and beautiful spring time flowers. Outside our azalea bushes and lilac bushes bloom with brilliant colors that bring a smile to my face each time I see them. The dogwood tree brightens a corner of our yard with a gorgeous pink.

I’m grateful for these displays of brilliant color shining in the spaces where they are planted. They provide a reminder that a call waits for us to answer: shine brilliantly for God in this world. When we root ourselves in His word and nurture ourselves with an atmosphere of people also grounded in His word, we grow in through each of the life challenges we face. The attitude with which we approach those challenges blossoms as the flower of where our hearts are based.

Matthew 6:21

21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

Just as the roots of the flower provide the nutrients for its bloom, so too do the roots of our thoughts and beliefs provide the nutrients for our actions in life.

May your roots lead to a brilliant bloom for all to see.

Blessings!
