What is true love? Here is a description of love from Wikipedia : “Love is an emotion of strong affection and personal attachment. In philosophical context, love is a virtue representing all of human kindness, compassion, and affection. Love is central to many religions, as in the Christian phrase, “God is love” or Agape in the Canonical gospels. Love may also be described as actions towards others (or oneself) based on compassion, or as actions towards others based on affection.” Everywhere I looked no one could really describe love!
Well, we know that God is All love..unconditional love! And what is unconditional love? Well, to me it is love with no conditions; loving someone or something no matter what they do, say or are. For example: animals, the 4 legged kind, give unconditional love just as God does! They love you no matter how you treat them, how you look or how what you have or don’t have! They love you with no conditions! Of course, if you are the person God created you to be, you will love them unconditionally too!?)
I recently lost my best friend, closest companion of 14 years who loved me unconditionally, my Saydee! She was always there through good or bad, thick or thin! She never left my side and always let me know she loved me! Now unconditional love is a two way street, so she always knew that I was there through good or bad, thick or thin and I would never leave her either and that I loved her! I know that God had created her just for me and visa versa!
Saydee was very special and now there is an empty place in my heart that aches. Oh, I have 2 precious little girls, Dolly and Rosie whom I love so very much and they love me, but they can’t fill that empty place. I know that my Daddy has the perfect little Mommy’s Girl for me. She won’t take Saydee’s place but she will be my new best friend, constant companion and take the emptiness and ache away. Saydee would want it that way! She will always have the #1 place in my heart! ♡
I know that I promised a ‘Continuation of Manny’s Visit’ but at this time there is something more important on my heart! Have you ever known and/or loved a friend who is having such a struggle with life that there, in the natural, doesn’t seem to be a light at the end of the tunnel? I have such a friend! This friend and their family are one of the sweetest families you could ever want to meet.
I lost contact with this friend for quite a few years and recently re-established our friendship! Now, we all go through things in our lives that are hard and sometimes seemingly impossible, but when you find Jesus and your ‘personal, first name basis’ friendship with Him, you know that there is nothing that is impossible! Well, this friend has had more than their share of trials and tribulations in their life, from finances to severe illnesses with all the family members! They are not ‘whiners’ or ‘I feel so sorry for myself’ people! On the contrary, they have good attitudes and can laugh at a lot of what goes on in their lives! The only problem is that they know OF Jesus, but don’t really KNOW Him personally!
Now, anyone who knows me, knows that I am a Believer and that I am not ashamed of it! My God, My Jesus, The Holy Spirit are first and foremost in my life! I walk, talk, breathe, live my love, faith and trust in my Daddy! I am a prayer and when I pray, I pray in the Name of Jesus, believing (knowing) that my prayer is answered and not doubting! This is me! Now, I don’t go around ‘preaching’ to people…you know, “You better get right with God or you’re going to Hell” type of thing! No, I am a SHARER! I love to share the Word of God, how good He is to me and how He is there for all of us ! I also love to share what He has done for me and how He wants to do the same for you! All we have to do is call on Him…ask Him! He is our Daddy, our Father, our Lord, our Everything! He gave us each our own will and won’t go against our will, so we have to surrender our will to His! His will for us is only for good in every situation!
Now, the reason for the heavy heart! I can pray for this wonderful family, I can share with them, but in order for things to straighten out in their situation, they have to believe, they have to know God personally and they have to take authority over their situation and cast the devil out of their home and their lives! It’s at times like this that I know what a heaviness God has in His heart when His children won’t obey and receive what He has for them. It is really so simple and easy to do! He is always there! He never leaves us nor forsakes us! He meets our every need, all we have to do is call on Him, know Him and trust Him!
I will continue praying, sharing and believing for this sweet family! I believe that their eyes of understanding are going to be opened and their hearts and minds are going to receive all of God’s goodness and His truth! Thank you for listening! God bless each and everyone of you and don’t forget to notice and be thankful for each and every blessing that comes your way every day!
Love and Blessings,
