Sunday's Thought

A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.  (John 13:34 ESV)

My thought today is geared towards showing love to those you love- more than just on Valentine's day, a birthday or other special occasion but as often as you can.

Last year at this time, I was grieving the loss of my mother. This year the memories of that day flood my mind and I grieve the loss of a dear friend.  I've yet to write a blog in her memory because I need time to form my words.

Before she died, we spent time together and always said "I Love You!" even after I was married, we shared those three words.  As she became ill and eventually passed away, I remember kissing her and say "I Love You" not knowing it'd be the last time I would see her alive.

Sometimes, verbalizing "I Love You" is difficult because of the situation.  For example, I have a few male friends that would not appreciate it.  One of those guy things, you know. But, there are ways to show you care.  Be sure and do it.
A Baptist Church

Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor.  (Romans 12:10 ESV)
