Sometimes we need a little lift in life by taking a look at ourselves. Life can be challenging at times; however, even in the challenges take time to live, laugh and be thankful. There is always something to be thankful for. Smile today. Laugh today. Tell someone that you care. Feel the warmth. Embrace the sunshine. Receive the love.

Encouragement for the times ~ Love
Love is the greatest gift of all time. Walk in love today. What reward is there, if we only love those who love us. Love is the greatest gift in the world. Love is the most powerful weapon we possess. It paralyzes the devil and flushes out fear. Jesus said that the two most important commandants are to love God with all your heart, mind and soul, and strength and to love your neighbor as yourself. “And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.” This is the first commandment. (Mark 12:30) And the second, like it, is this: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” There is no other commandment greater than these.” (Mark 12:31). Everything hangs on the law of love. If you truly want to be blessed in life, than walk in love, even towards those who have hurt you the most.
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16).
