      It has been written, How do I love thee…let me count the ways!

      If we could number the ways we love the Lord and why, it might be easier to try and count snowflakes falling from the heavens!

      How might you articulate or describe your love of Him?!

      TR, what a clever idea.

      The love I have for Christ (God Incarnate), fills me with such tears of gratitude that if possible I would fill all the creeks, streams, and rivers that flow into the ocean and circle the heavenly bodies without end. I cannot even imagine my life without the Lord, for me there would be no life, as existence without the Love of the Lord and my love for my Savior is no existence at all.

      Just imagine being in the Holy presence of pure love poured out, such awe, peace and contentment. Oh boy, my heart is very full, :thankyou :prayer-hands:

      When I walk in my garden and pick a flower … I first admire the beautiful colors and enjoy the fragrance.  Then as I start plucking the petals off one by one I say “Jesus loves me”,  there is never a “He loves me not”.

       

      Ephesians 2:4-5

      But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, by grace ye are saved;

      Galatians 2:20
      I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

      I love Him with the love of a man rescued from a burning building.  I love Him as one who deserved the wrath of God and was given a pardon marked, “Paid in Full.”

      I have written poems, psalms, and colorful speech filled with imagery. But of the myriad of ways and reasons that I love the Lord, I can only sum up like this:

      I love Him mostly because, He knows who I really am and still loves me!

      I love you Lord because you first loved me! You loved me Lord even before I was born. I held a special place in your heart even before I was conceived. Even before anyone was conceived.

      Then You paid a Bride price that we might Wed! As great, glorious and perfect as You are, your heart was glad and lifted when I sought You out! What kind of love is this that you have for me!
      It can only be called Divine!

      Then You saw fit to nurture me all the days of my life, wanting only good things for me! How could I not offer You my love in return.

      You laugh when I laugh, You cry when I cry, and when I’m lonely and missing You, your heart aches! And now we share being anxious to be with one another, forever!

      I love you Lord as best as I can, looking forward to the day that my love will be perfect as Yours is already!

      Aw you’re so sweet, T.R. :rose:

      I was at Home Depot today and purchased 6 flowering plants.  Great sale  only $5.00 each container.

       

      This $40.00 Mandevilla plant the worker dropped while taking off the truck so he dumped it into my shopping cart and said this is yours for free.  My humming birds are going to be sooo happy.  I just have to transplant it to another container.

      Also got a chance to witness to someone today.  The timing of that was perfect.  I love how the Lord plans those encounters.  So my boring day turned out to be a great day. :yes:
