It has so much potential...
...and it's incredibly deserted.
How sad! I am quite possibly the world's worst blogger! Who leaves their blog alone for months at a time? No good, my friends. No good.
I feel that there's so much to say, but there's no possible way to say it all in a mere blog post. Christmas even happened. I'm so sorry. All I can say is that I promise to be better! Or at least try to be better. I would love to see this blog actually go places in 2014 (however, I think that I would get much more traffic if I were a fashionista blogger...).
So here's to the rest of this year and the looming summer that's trying to break through the clouds (come ON!).
A little something that's been on my heart lately: God's been convicting me in the area of love. I don't mean the fireworks kind of love that Chad and I have (wink wink). I mean loving His people. I've been praying a lot about loving people and seeing them through His eyes. We've all got a story. We've all got our issues. We've all got something. To be completely vulnerable and honest, I struggle with this. I jump to cynical/skeptical conclusions about people. I get annoyed with little things and then have a hard time being around certain people. But Jesus does not teach this. He teaches us to love. Like really love. 1 John 4:7 says, "beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God." He's the one who sat at the table with the tax collectors and whores (gasp!). He's the one who gives water to the thirsty and food to the hungry. And we are called to do the same. I've been striving to always give people the benefit of the doubt. To always love. To always speak with kind words and choose peace and harmony.
That's a good word. That is my prayer. For harmony, love, and peaceful things. I know it maybe sounds a bit unrealistic or fantastical...but it's my prayer. I want to love. to really love.
Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited.
