Wear Love

col312143

The beginning of the year has been difficult for me in the past few years.  This year I’m in that difficult place again.  January 27 2002 was the last time I saw my mother smile.  She died on the 9th of February. I often wonder what life would be like if she were alive, at the same time, I know if I hadn’t witnessed how my mother lived when things were most difficult, I would find it hard to  live my life. In one of the devotionals I’m studying this year, I came across today’s scripture, and it was like a hug from Paul. It’s such a good reminders and great advice – I have a lot left to learn (quick to forgive an offense), but I’m grateful to be alive to learn it.  Wear love is something I can hear my mom say. I don’t think I wear love all the time.  I don’t have much time around others, but I can wear love for my family.  I can wear love for myself.  It can become so common place that is it not something I have to put on.  It will be a permanent part of me.  I can show others the love Jesus has shown me.  Can’t I?

  1. That’s a wonderful memorial of your mother. My paternal grandmother and her sister (my great aunt) taught me so much about living life and how to treat family. I still miss them.

    Improving ourselves and our lives is always an on-going process. I bet your mother didn’t come that way out of the box! I bet she grew and learned, just like you do.

    This is a good post and I’d encourage you to keep on trusting God and living a good life, just like you’re talking about here. I’m glad to see you write it out as a reminder and priority to yourself. Because to me, that’s what blogging is about. It’s nice to have followers, but at the end, I need to see what I wrote and remember it.
