♥Love♥ †GOD†, ♥Love♥ People.

LoveGODlovePeople
This is the magnet that ☼Sunshine☼’s rear bumper used to sport when I first bought her. It also reminds me of John 4:16b, in which I’d sing with my children’s Church choir:

♫ †GOD† is ♥Love♥ ♪

Acts of love come from kindness, mercy and patience.

Compassion = with Passion

We can extend our love to others, who are in need. For instance, my Church’s visiting priest encouraged my Congregation to contribute to the Maryknoll cause, one of which my mother is a patron, and also of the Oblates of Mary Immaculate, which is Bishop Mike’s religious order. Another way is to pour our hearts out to those who we meet, like I did on Monday…

On my way to work this morning, I found a woman down on the side of the road w/her dog. I pulled over to help her w/my First Aid kit. She told me several cars passed by before I stopped my truck, & a man also parked his to lift her up. This lady is lucky to have her loyal black lab who never left her side on her leash. Morals of the story: * if you see someone in need, render aid b/c it’s the humane thing to do for GOD’s people * keep a First Aid kit in handy * caring companions are always around @ the right time #GoodSamaritan #BePrepared #MansBestFriend #DontLeaveAFallenSoldierBehind

GOD lives through our fellow man, so we’re here on Earth to treat others as we would JESUS CHRIST, because we could be looking at His face in everyday encounters, and we, in turn, live in His image.

I’ve noticed this more and more lately in the positive people with whom I’ve surrounded myself: as my fellow lay minister, Evie, calls us

spiritual warriors

My Church buddy, Joe, also told me this:

If GOD wants it, it’ll happen.

We’re following His plan for the Catholic school, if it is in His will.

†GOD† Bless & Keep Y’all!!! 4:44 ~ live on a †prayer† ✌Peace✌!
