Since my husband has had his heart surgery I have felt truly loved. We have received prayers, notes, phone calls, dinners and even a few gift cards. I never realized how special these things were until I received them. Now I can say I am changed…. I can do more and will!
A few months ago our Bible readings (Luke 15) were the parable of the Lost sheep and lost coin….after the sheep was found the Shepard went home and says to his friends and neighbors “come and rejoice with me” and when the woman found her coin she called her neighbors and said “come and rejoice with me” The next week was the story of John the baptizer’s birth (Luke 1). When it was time for Elizabeth to have her baby, she gave birth to a son. 58 Her neighbors and relatives heard that the Lord had shown her great mercy, and they shared her joy.
I have been thinking a lot….do I truly rejoice with one another? Do I love and care for those in need? Speaking as one who was in the midst of a crisis…..It is wonderful and we feel loved. I am changed ….
God’s Blessings, Candy
