Fall - it's my favorite!

Family - what a treasure!
You know what I truly think makes a family strong and full of blessing?

~ LOVE ~

"Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another." 1 John 4:11

Real love. Not the kind that just speaks the words, but the kind that puts love into actions and lives it in truth (spending time with one another, playing, talking, hugs, smiles, and showing patience). What is the greatest action of love I can show my family? "By this we know love, that He laid down His life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for the brothers [my husband, my children]." 1 John 3:16
So with that thought before me, I want to walk in love this week and cheerfully serve my children and husband. I do not wish to seek my own glory, ease, or pleasure, but truly lay down myself and think of them first.
