Advent: Monday, December 9 . . . Love

274

Monday is our day to ramp it up and renew an element of living.  *We recommend this practice for individuals, couples, and families as well as organizations.  This practice serves who we are and what we do.

This week our conversation at the table centers on advent and what it means to be love in this world. 

Each day provides an opportunity to show and tell someone they are loved.

But.

Opportunities to reach out to others are missed when life is overwhelmingly busy.  Reaching out to someone with love requires intentionally giving time and effort.

Whether we do something small or big with love . . . it’s without expectation of something in return . . . including gratefulness.

Because.

It’s easy to be offended when we tally how much we do and how our service is often taken for granted.  

Even, so.

The highest form of service is given through valuing the individual without the desire or need to be repaid.

This. is. love.

There’s always more each and every day~Joshua & Kerrie

*Connect with  a life-coach, pastor, spiritual advisor, professional counselor, or trusted friend for direction, guidance, and wisdom.

Think On This . . . 

At age 13, our son insisted our family had a mission statement.  After-all, his baseball team had a mission statement.  

So.

After several conversations, we formulated our mission with four simple words,

“Love all; serve all.”

And.

We wrote our mission statement out to make it official.  

While we had always believed in love and service;  formulating these words into a mission underlined these two actions as our family’s big deal. 

We discussed how defining our family mission changed our perspective on the little and big things of life.

The Bible is the story of God’s love . . . written down . . . to underline love as the big deal of humanity’s mission.   

Light Two Candles

Today . . . light the candle symbolizing hope celebrated in the first week of advent and light the candle symbolizing love this week . . . taking the time to underline God’s love as the foundation of who we are and the mission of what’s ours to do. 

Merry Christmas!

Perspective . . . 

O God, how extravagant is your cherishing love!”  (Psalm 36:7a (TPT)).
