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!

Good morning!

Do you find it hard to have peace when the wind blows?

The Lord promised we would have storms in this life, but He also promised we could have peace. I pray as you turn your heart and mind toward the Lord Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace, you will experience His peace that passes all understanding.

Meanwhile, I hope you enjoy this edition of Share the Love.
