Full of Love: God’s Love

not because we were lovely to Him,

but to make us lovely.

What does God’s love mean to you?

It is all encompassing, true, patient and forever.  Every word that I read in the Bible confirms that he has redeemed me, even though I certainly was unworthy.   To quote a song:  “I am His, and He is mine.”    -Rita Manzella

And, what does it mean to you

to live a life full of love?

For me, to live a life full of love I try to acknowledge every prompting of the Holy Spirit to reach out to others.  Usually, but not always, they are total strangers.  People in the market waiting in line to pay, clerks or waiters helping me, a mother whose toddler is screaming, or just someone who needs a smile and/or a small compliment.  You never know what someone is going through in their life and maybe God is using you or me as an encouragement.   -Rita
