The Lord's Love Through Us

This isn't much of a post. It is just something I read and liked.

"The Lord's love is often delivered through others as they respond to promptings of the Spirit. Are we hearing and following those promptings?"

"I fear sometimes we see the Lord's love only in the big events of our lives; we must also see His love in the smallest of things.
Don't underestimate your ability to share His love through a simple, genuine gesture such as sitting next to another sister and making her feel welcome."

(Bonnie D. Parkin, "Eternally Encircled in His Love," Ensign, Nov. 2006, 109-10)

The picture I found on a friends website. She is a beautiful lady in my ward that paints beautiful pictures. Her website is Marla Duggins

It's amazing to me that inspiration to one person can be something that hits home to another. This post is beautiful and it is very though prevoking for me.

That is a very nice post. I like how it says we always need to remember God, not just during the big things in life.

I love you big sis! We all do need to remember to look for these small but important ways that we can bless others, or ways that He has blessed us through them. I know that He blesses me through all of my wonderful family and friends!

Did your friends draw that picture? I am going to go to her site and see her art. (I wish that I were an artist!)

I think she did draw the picture. But it is not her normal style. I think it may have been the result of a class on painting like the masters. I like it a lot. But I love the colorful paintings she usually makes even more.
