So my friend who used to be my boss posted this blog about the ONE WORD. He’s a pretty smart guy and had asked his faculty to send him a word… I will let you go read his blog: PLEASE CLICK HERE TO READ HIS BLOG FIRST.
…and watch the ONE WORD video there…
Here’s part of my message I posted to his blog:
You know I can’t narrow my life to one word…THAT WOULD BE TOO SIMPLE! ALTHO–The word that has been repeating itself in my mind over and over for several days now in the face of all kinds of crazy life stuff (nothing bad, just life) is LOVE. I know I love, but do I love like I’m supposed to? Do I ALWAYS love like I’m supposed to? I don’t when I blow up at my kids or feel defeated looking at my laundry which has become like Mount Rushmore (serious, with faces and everything) …
I GOTTA REMEMBER TO LOVE in all circumstances. NO MATTER WHAT IS GOING ON! People may hate on me, children may say my name like a broken record (ha! kids these days don’t even know what “broken record” means) and I might feel stressed by stuff going on around me…BUT LOVE DOESN’T LOSE IT’S COOL…Love shows LOVE. Love creates LOVE. Love shows mercy and grace and brings on comfort and peace.
I want to LOVE like Jesus loves us.
It really is simple.
