and so very much for the Sunshine goodie and the message that my page has inspired you. I've been struggling quite a bit of late, and it is so gratifying to know that I may be having a positive impact without even realizing it. You really brightened my day. Thank you for reaching out!
And your page has inspired me and given me hope. Your pix from your wedding last year give me hope that I may yet find someone special--regardless of age (I turn 60 in March). I am adding you as a to keep up with your progress. Feel free to check out any of my teams if you wish. Take care. Blessed Be, Amanda 977 days ago
If I decorate my house perfectly with plaid bows, strands of twinkling lights and shiny balls, but do not show love to my family, I'm just another decorator.
If I slave away in the kitchen, baking dozens of Christmas cookies, preparing gourmet meals and arranging a beautifully adorned table at mealtime, but do not show love to my family, I'm just another cook.
If I work at the soup kitchen, carol in the nursing home and give all that I have to charity, but do not show love to my family, it profits me nothing.
If I trim the spruce with shimmering angels and crocheted snowflakes, attend a myriad of holiday parties and sing in the choir's cantata but do not focus on Christ, I have missed the point.
Love stops the cooking to hug the child. Love sets aside the decorating to kiss the spouse. Love is kind, though harried and tired. Love doesn't envy another's home that has coordinated Christmas china and table linens. Love doesn't yell at the kids to get out of the way. Love doesn't give only to those who are able to give in return but rejoices in giving to those who can't. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails. Video games will break, pearl necklaces will be lost, golf clubs will rust, but giving the gift of LOVE will endure.
