Share the Love ~ July

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven. Ecclesiastes 3:1

Good morning! Can you believe this is the last week in July? Where has the summer gone? Have you finished your summer projects? Taken a vacation? Are looking forward to the school year? 🙂 If you’ve been too busy to enjoy the heat, I’ve tucked a few ideas amid the links for the remaining days of summer.

I hope you enjoyed this month’s theme. Remember every small act of kindness builds a better world for tomorrow!

Please enjoy this month’s Share the Love!

Share the Love ~ June

And patience, experience; and experience, hope. Romans 5:4

It’s hard to be patient when learning new things or dealing with health issues. I tend to have more patience with others than I do with myself.

Yet, Paul reminds us that through our patience we learn. And when looking back, we discover our prior learning offers hope for the future.

I found this quote when preparing for this month’s theme and thought I’d share it with you. I’ve it posted where I can see it every day. I hope it encourages you too!

Share The Love – March

That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us: Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil; Hebrews 6:18-19

Good morning, dear reader! We have been talking about hope this month. I pray the posts and posters have encouraged you to move ahead in your walk. Remember, we are never without hope. Jesus is our Hope.

Last week, I began a new series called Women of Faith and Fiction. Lynnette did a wonderful job sharing her heart. Your comments and responses on social media blessed me. Thank you for your participation.

To choose the winner of our giveaway, I assigned numbers in the order of comments, and then Random.org chose the lucky number. Drum roll, please…

And the winner of Not A Sparrow Falls is…Tori Kayson! ❤

Be sure to check out this month’s Share the Love. Alert: If you are on a diet or planning to go on a diet forget the Dulce Leche link! Just the pictures will make you gain weight. 🙂 Oh, my!
