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?
