Love and Loss

It seems like everyone has experienced the death of a loved one in the past year and a half. My own family lost both of my husband's grandparents within a few months of each other. Although I ache at the gap their passing left in our lives, I'm reminded of a quote from Alfred Lord Tennyson: "'Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all." Any relationship comes with the potential for hurt. But the good things - affection, happy memories, personal discovery and growth, understanding, and example - these leave a legacy forever. Keep that legacy alive in your heart. Don't be afraid to love deeply, and love now.
In Christ,

August Scripture Writing Plan

Don't forget to make God your priority this month, and every month, by committing at least 10 minutes a day to meditate and reflect on God's Word. A great way to do this is by using a scripture writing plan. The Ruffled Mango produces great plans every month to focus our attention on God's Word. Take a look at this month's plan by clicking below.
