A month to give LOVE, and maybe it could be a month we let ourselves BE LOVED in new and deeper ways. Sometimes it's easier to give love then to rest in love. To just relax, to pause from our busy, hurried lives ... and to be loved deeply.
Taking time for rest, for spiritual whitespace, for giving our hearts, souls, and minds time to breathe. Taking time to be loved deeply by our Creator. Taking time to just be ourselves, just as He created us. For we are a fragrance of His love, in our own unique ways, to those around us. And in order to love, we need to first be loved.
We love each other
because He loved us first.
(I John 4:19)
This month (and each month) - pausing, and soaking in the deep love of God ... and then spreading this love to others through the fragrance of our lives.
Taking time to soak up His Words, taking time to rest, and to be loved. And sometimes we need some new, fresh ideas - some encouragement to slow down, and to be loved. Click here to download some fresh ideas of savoring rest - a free download from Bonnie Gray, "Shots of Spiritual Whitespace".

I am in need of rest, and I need to pause and soak up His love in deeper ways during this month of love. These past three months have been overwhelmingly busy as we have cared for my 93 year-old father through a very traumatic time for him. And we will also be traveling in the near future to be a support and help to our family at the time of our granddaughter's kidney transplant. So thankful for some time to rest and soak up love as this month begins.
How about you?
Are you in need of an
extra measure of love this month?
