Love, Sweet Love


I have been thinking about this wonderful new year
I've been blessed with, and have done some personal
goal setting.  I have included steps to reach these goals,
and am praying for all I need to achieve each one.

Hands down, one of them stands above the rest,
and comes from 
deep within my soul,
birthed by my Lord,
who is the very embodiment 
of perfect love...

LOVE MORE!

That's it...just LOVE MORE!

 {this absolutely charming heart was made by my friend Vesna...I won it!  Just delightful!}
{You can find her here, go say hello, won't you?}

To love more requires me to be
more intentionally~

~prayerful
 ~compassionate
~encouraging
 ~thoughtful 
 ~giving
 ~sacrificial 
~unselfish
~merciful
~respectful
~non judgmental
~supportive 
~optimistic
~joyful
~helpful

I need to hug more
{even though I'm quite huggy already}
{smile}


You see what I mean...

just LOVE MORE!!!

~~~~~~~

I can't wait to see what God does 
with this goal, and how it impacts me
and those around me.

After all, He says to love one another
as He has loved us.
{and that is perfectly}

I'm quite sure I won't hit perfect,
but I aim to get closer to it than I am now!!

May His perfect love enfold you today!!

Hugs!!!!

"...we love because He first loved us..."

May you be so filled with the unconditional love of God that whomever you come in contact with will feel that love and know that they are in the presence of their Creator living within you.

The spirit of the Lord shines through in all that you say, my sweet friend.

Thank you Becky! And I wish that your goal is attained! :) Everyone needs to try some more of that!

Oh Becky, that is so perfectly said. That is one of my goals as well, but you really took the time to gage the steps needed to get there. Amazing!

Another for me, along with the love, is healing relationships. I pray we'll both reach our goals.

Blessings,
Donna

Hi Beck, I have to say as I read your list, it seemed to embody who you are already. I love each goal though and know I sure could use some improvement-actually alot.
Praying for you sweet friend, may your weekend be blessed.

This is an awesome post! Thank you! I was given a wonderful book that goes right along with what you wrote about. I am reading it right now. It is called, "Small Things with Great Love" (adventures in loving your neighbor) by Margot Starbuck. I recommend it to you! Hugs and Tweets!
