LOVE, an all-purpose garment!

Supplies have been purchased, backpacks are ready, the clothes are picked out and I'm headed to bed. Good-bye to one of THE FUNNEST summers I've had and HELLO to a new season!
My two high schoolers headed off to their back to school retreat that their school does for 9-12th grade yesterday. I pray for each of my kids this year, that they will be blessed, grow in their walk with HIM, and learn more about living Colossians 3:14-15........that they will be compassionate to others, kind, humble and strong, that forgiveness will come easy for them and that they will learn early that LOVE is an all-purpose garment!


So, chosen by God for this new life of love, dress in the wardrobe God picked out for you: compassion, kindness, humility, quiet strength, discipline. Be even-tempered, content with second place, quick to forgive an offense. Forgive as quickly and completely as the Master forgave you. And regardless of what else you put on, wear love. It's your basic, all-purpose garment. Never be without it. Colossians 3:14-15


NOTE: Pictures of the third child coming soon ; ) I took this one yesterday, since they were on their way to their retreat.
