He arrived at our house at midnight last night.

Hands and teeth aching from a stressful drive on treacherous roads.

But he was smiling. 

Tim met him in the driveway and asked, “Was it worth it?”

With a grin, he replied, “YES!”

And he’s finishing his journey from the north to a town in the south to visit her…….

“The Beginning”

After we gave him a hug good bye and made him promise to call when he arrived at his final destination, I walked through the back yard (very carefully) this morning and looked for love………

This is what I found. olivias party 030_resizeolivias party 019_resize olivias party 022_resize olivias party 026_resizeThere’s a precious boy on the road today driving four more hours to visit the girl he just might love.

Today, my prayer is that I can see love everywhere I look, because it is on the road traveling, it is in my yard growing, and it is in the things men have built.

Because I see love, I want to show love.

Love is why we have hope.

Love is Him.

John 3:16

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son. that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

John 13:34-35

Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”

Loving all of you today,
