Wear Love


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?

That’s all

NYC is shut down.  Ive never seen this before. They are predicting 12 – 24 inches. Im praying God will spare us some of that snow or send a good shoveler this way. With two senior citizens and one disabled person as the main tenants – snow storms are always an anxious time.  My father feels he is superman and tries to shovel everything – truth is he’s in his mid 70s and lives a mostly sedentary lifestyle.

Feels like a music night It calms me.  I haven’t heard this one in a long time.  Nice start. 🙂

There is an episode of I Love Lucy where a woman is singing this song.  She recounted singing it, and everyone seeming awkward and sheepish when she was done. She thought she had done a bad job, turns out that was the morning Lucy and Desi told everyone they were getting a divorce.  Everyone was sad… That’s All.
