Laugh Out Loud, Love Completely, Live As If This Were Your Last Day…

Which of God’s commandments is the most important one?  Jesus answered, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength:  this is the first commandment”.  And the second is “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.  There is no other commandment greater than these”. -Jesus

It’s been another week of bad headlines; sometimes it almost seems that it might be easier iStock_000005162197Smalljust “not to know”.   And  yet as Moms, we need to know;  Because keeping our children safe and providing them with all that they will need to grow up in to caring, compassionate and faithful adults who will one day be able to go in pursuit of their dreams is -our job.

On the other hand, once we know all of the bad news-what do we do with it. How do we “fix it”.  The answer is-we don’t.  “Fixing it” is up to God.  For us, as Christians, we simply need to do what we have always done:  Love God, and love each other.  For that is all that God requires and it is all that Christ commanded.  So this week, no matter the news, pledge to find the time to laugh out loud, to love completely and to live at least one day-as it if were the last day before Jesus comes back.  Take one day-and be completely happy.  No matter what.  For with God, “all things are possible”.
