Share HIS Beauty and Love
















These azaleas are beautiful, just as GOD created them to be! We all have beauty inside us. I wonder as I gaze at this photo (taken last spring in my yard) if the beauty inside of me is spilling out? or am I hoarding it for myself?

Let's share God's beauty and blessings from within with all those around us! Let us love one another with the love only GOD can give!

"Love the Lord your God with all your passion and prayer and intelligence.......Love others as well as you love yourself." Matthew 22:37-40 The Message

Amazed by HIS grace,

Andrea

What a wonderful reminder! I agree with Denise! You are always blessing others with your kind words, actions and prayers!

Love you, Leslie

I like passion,prayer and intelligence.
I ask God that I may live consciously in His presence...so often I drift through the day, knowing He is there but not necessarily being conscious of the joy of His presence.
I think the older I get the easier it is to drift when there are not a lot of commitments to keep us on track.

Rita said...

Oh the wonderful things that He created for us, especially the beautiful flowers. I too pray that the beauty inside will spill out and I can share God's beauty and blessing with those I come in contact with. Have a great week.

Regina said...

You are BEAUTIFUL inside AND out! I often pray that others can see my love for our Heavenly Father spilling out from me in all I do, but I know I have days where that doesn't shine through. Something I continue to work on daily.

Than you, for such a wonderful reminder as we begin another week!

Blessings~

Beth E. said...

Thank you for a powerful reminder, Andrea. God created us in His image. May the beauty of that truth and His love be reflected in me!

Your azaleas are beautiful. Every time I see azaleas, I am reminded of the Azalea Garden at Bryan Park in Richmond. My husband and I lived in just outside the Richmond area for 13 years. We used to enjoy spending time at the park, especially when the azaleas were in bloom. We have very fond memories of those years!

Blessings,
Beth

if the beauty inside of me is spilling out? or am I hoarding it for myself?....

I thought to myself also..am I not even allowing it to spill out or let it flow within me and out of me?

This was beautiful. Thank you so much for sharing..Thank you for covering us with our Precious Father's Word..sigh...oh how I love His Word...food that sustains!

I love azaleas, but it is a rare one that thrives in our area. Enjoying them while here in Texas, though.

Yet the love of Christ exceeds any other beauties we might imagine!

One thing have I asked of Jehovah, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of Jehovah all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of Jehovah, and to inquire of him in his temple. Psalm 27: 4

For how great is his goodness, and how great is his beauty! Zechariah 9: 17
