Let’s begin with The Word.

John 13:34-- “I give you a new command: Love one another. Just as I have loved you, you must love one another. By this all people will know that you are MY disciples, if you have love for one another.”

... I was up half the night marinating on all the ‘LOVE’ in my life, and how grateful I am for those who actively and outwardly express their LOVE. To me, Love is a verb.

This is a LOVE letter to my: family, spiritual family, mentors, teachers, confidantes, and dear friends.

In this busy season of last minute shopping, traveling, and organizing the holidays, my heart and mind want to pause and give thanks… to you… who pour out your LOVE into my life. It's in you, and through you, that I experience Jesus on a regular basis!

Here are just a few ways I experience God’s Love through you:

· It’s in your LOVE that I experience great JOY!

· It’s your LOVE that encourages me when I feel sad, hurt, or desperate… when I feel I am holding on by a string.

· It's LOVE when you challenge and push me to be all that I should be… in Christ.

· It's LOVE I feel when you are pouring yourself out to promote God’s kingdom, no matter your personal sacrifices.

· It’s LOVE when you teach and lovingly correct me… in order that I may remain laser focused on my life’s calling.

· It’s LOVE that you are bestowing when you minister God’s wisdom to my soul.

· It's LOVE when you accept me just as I am… broken, wounded, inadequate… just like Jesus did and does and will until…

I know this is God's LOVE manifested in you and through you.
Today I give thanks to God for you. I Love each of you so…

You are the LIGHT in this broken world my brothers and sisters. (Mathew 5: 14-16).
My prayer is that you continue to shine your LIGHT brightly EVERYWHERE!!!
You have certainly lit up my life with your LOVE. THANK YOU!!!!

I pray that JESUS continues to use each of you mightily for His Glory. May you continue to yield to the Holy Spirit, so that He may guide you in everything.

May your Christmas be filled to the brim with the LOVE of CHRIST!
No doubt… HIS LOVE is in the air. HALLELUJAH!!!!

Merry 'Christ'mas!
In the Name of The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit. Amen.
