I’m thankful for …
* my hubby that loves me with his whole heart, even when I’m in the worst of foul moods and feel ugly in both body & spirit
* my poochies that may not know the meaning of love but show unconditional love in the way that they follow me around, and when I’m sitting or laying down, how they hug up so close beside me that if they were any closer they’d be on the other side of me
* my parents that love me as only parents can … for who I am
There are so many others that I’m thankful for … those that love me and those that I love.
But what really is love? Is it only a feeling? Is it an action? Is it both?
I think love is both a feeling and an action.
I can think about many occasions within our marriage when hubby and I may not have liked each other at the time but continued to serve each other because of the love that we share and the commitment to each other that we made on that December night oh so many years ago.
“Love is patient, love is kind … ” I remember our pastor asking us to take out “love” and insert our names: “Lisa is patient, Lisa is kind …” am I really patient and kind all the time?
No. There are many times that Lisa is very impatient and incredibly unkind.
Thankfully, I have a Father in heaven that gives me opportunities for second chance upon second chance. How? By asking for His forgiveness and then relying on Him to help me be the daughter of the King that He’s called me to be.
The love of the Lord.
I can’t think of anything that I am more thankful for.
