Hi Friends! Hope you are doing well on this beautiful summer Sunday. We've been relishing the quality (and quantity) time we have been able to spend with my mom and dad as he recuperates from knee replacement surgery here at our house. The time is drawing to a close very soon, as he will most likely get the okay from his doctor to head back to Lubbock early this week.
We will miss them deeply when they return home. It has truly been a joy and an honor to be the hands and feet of Jesus for them as they went through this trial in their lives. I know I will always treasure this time we had with them, in spite of the circumstances.
Today, I'm sharing this special verse from 2 Corinthians 8:7, "But just as you excel in everything-- in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in complete earnestness and in your love for us -- see that you also excel in this grace of giving." Paul may have been referring to a financial type of giving in this verse, but I think it speaks to us giving of ourselves also. When we truly put knowledge and faith into action by pouring into others' lives, we begin living the life we were meant to live. Wishing you a beautiful week, my friends!
