And i just finished reading the Shack, and picked up Irresistible Revolution...which I highly recommend. I am remembering all the things I want to do with my life, starting by stepping across the poverty line and just loving better. It's the hardest yet most important thing we can ever do...that is the purpose of our lives....to be loved by God and to love other people.
And now i'm hoping and striving to live a holy and blameless life....like 1 thessalonians...this is a letter of encouragement, for them to live this life, not a letter of condemnation for not living that way. God gave us his Holy Spirit to love others, and living holy and blameless alllows us to be near God and to love others the way he calls us to.
I love it here, and am excited to DO more of this, instead of just talking and learning about it.
SO...how is your love? How well are you loving others around you? It's not a feeling, it's a sacrifice..
and for those of you who don't know...Ashley Ruder is engaged!
and i really love my family...
