They say February is the month of love and we agree!
Valentines is over but the rest of February doesn't have to be love-less. The chocolates have run out at home and the fuzzy feelings from date night might have faded as chores need tending and responsibilities of another work week are upon us. Luckily, love is not chocolate and pure love can withstand any highs and lows, including a chocolate drought!
All this month, we have shared COH love stories with you. What constants have you seen from story to story? What undeniable traits does pure love portray? They're certainly not chocolate covered or fuzzy bears but rather steadfast passion, compassion, and faith. Want to see our stories? Head on over to our Facebook page!
When Jesus walked the earth he spoke frequently of love and it's role in our lives.
Recently, someone asked me what made our children in Malawi happy...I believe love does. The children of the Grace Center love with their entire hearts and the joy that brings is contagious. They do not have endless possessions or stories of exceptionally warm and fuzzy childhoods but they do have a very tangible understanding of their role in God's kingdom and the love Jesus has for them.
As we associate love with chocolate, our friends in Malawi teach us to associate it with LIFE! As Christians, no matter where we live or what our experiences have been, it is the love of Christ that sets us free!
Go buy some half priced leftover Valentines goodies this week but remember that all is not lost when that last piece of sugary goodness disappears... stay tuned for more love this month!
