Thoughts for February 2017

February is the month of love! Red hearts decorate store windows and websites. Valentine’s Day arrives on the 14th, reminding us to appreciate those we love dearly.

As we remember to celebrate our loved ones, let us also celebrate being loved by God. In Jeremiah 31:3, God says: “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.” It is wonderful to think about kindness and love in the context of being a recipient of God’s kindness and God’s love, but we are also able to share love with one another because God loves us.

Look around. Who needs to know the blessings of God’s love today? It may be our kindness that helps someone realize that they are loved. Encourage someone with kindness and love today.

Blessings,
Chaplain Nancy
