As I was thinking about different quotes and song lyrics, phrases and thoughts about love, my mind remembered a verse that truly is the embodiment of how I want love to look for me and my family.
To serve one another in love for our family means being kind and generous with our time, our home, our food and things.
Sometimes it is hard (like when you’re tired or running short on resources or when when your best friend’s family lives with you for 7 months and by the end you just kinda want to not share anymore) and other times comes easily (like when your home team is in the playoffs and you don’t even hesitate rearranging your beloved furniture to accommodate a gigantic screen and a million wild children because go seahawks!).
Messing up your house, occupying your limited time, dirtying up dishes and giving of your money is not necessarily convenient. It takes sacrifice and putting others ahead of yourself, which for most of us does not come naturally.
Serving in love is not always easy, but it’s always worth it.
I hope this is what our family is about.
This print was just a quick drawing that I’d love to pass along to you during this month where we celebrate all things love.
