Today's Thought

"What does love look like? It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men. That is what love looks like." (St. Augustine of Hippo)
As the world today is focused on Valentine's day and the concept of "LOVE" let us pause and remember the truest love of all found through Jesus Christ. May we constantly recognize that the reason we know love is because He came into the world and died for our sins. May we give thanks today for our loved ones and for being able to share this beautiful emotion with those around us. Let us strive for a Christian love.....one that is not self-seeking. Lord guide us to understand the way that we are called to love one another. May we always give thanks to You; recognizing that You are the author of love. Help us to make ourselves gifts of love through our service to others. Lord bless each of Your children today and always. May they feel the warmth of Your love and know that You are always with them. Help us to remember that You above all are our first and most important love. Help us to share this love with one another in a way that is pleasing to You. Thank You Lord for finding us worthy of Your love and mercy. Amen. (C.C.)
