Love two weeks until the celebration of Easter

I have been thinking about love in the context of my Gram..when i was young and she would try to direct me, i "hated" her. she was mean and not fun. As i became an adult i loved her more and more for her strength of character, her unwavering self awareness and her words of wisdom. She was a woman who lived through the tough times of depression, bore 11 children, lost 2 very young and 2 in the last 20 years. She fed and cared for her children even through years of alcoholic abuse from grandfather(i never knew him). And this family of aunts and uncles are the happiest, fun lovingest people i know!

* 1John3:18 "Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth."*

My Gram did this. she was never light with her words like we are, saying "i love this" about anything that comes across our path. She loved in actions and in truth and meant it when she said it.
This day, love someone in actions. Do something that SHOWS them love; a gift, a service,a card with encouraging words. Lets be sincere when we say love and mean it truly.
Please do keep all those under the terrible storms in ND, KY, KS in our prayers as they are starting spring without homes and probably alot more.

a new beginning..

I have returned from my trip..i did get to spend 2 fun and loving weeks with my gram. She passed away on Sunday March 22, her suffering was short and we all know she is back at home with the Lord. It was a time of self discovery for me, and i experienced so many things. I will probably share some of them as i go along, for now the grief is too near to do that.

On a different note we are going to be involved in the play to win on! It is a give away and a few items from our shops will be there so please be sure to check it out! I am going to feature this watch :
I have so much to catch up on having been out of the game for 2 weeks so please post me a note about anything you would like me to know and i will get back to you or be sure to check it out! More tomorrow! Love to you all!

A break to go share love..

Well, i am taking a trip to visit a sick and very loved Gram..i will probably not be posting for about 2 weeks so i can go focus on her,sharing in her last days. This is one of those trips that you want to go do but don't want to go please don't give up on me, keep sharing love and paying the good forward because you never know if you are the last person that does good to someone...Be blessed and well and i will catch up with everyone when i return.
