Overwhelmed with thoughts of love

Warning... reading this might cause your head to spin, because mine is!

I was walking into "the building" today on my way into church. It's still funny to me that we don't call it church we call it a building, because we are a church, it really is just a building that holds a whole bunch of love!!

OK! Focus Margie!

I was thinking about how this building, this church, binds a whole bunch of people together. People who might have never met each other, but have come to love each other. I was walking in front of this great family who just recently had a baby, and how fabulous they are, and how blessed I am to know them and how blessed I am to serve with them.

People who are broken by the world, people who have been healed by Love. People who have been there from the beginning, those of us who came in the middle, and those who are newer. Those of us who serve, those who don't. Those who put this building together, those who have their names on the floor and are now walking in.

I think about my friends who I probably never would have met but because of His grace and Love, are such dear dear friends of mine. Who I cry with, pray for, those who pray for me, those that we celebrate together! When it may seem like there is nothing to celebrate and BIG things to celebrate.

I think about how my heart changes everyday because of them. Because of Him. How everyday I hope that my life points a little bit more towards Him and a little less towards me.

I think about how blessed I am to love and be loved. Because I chose to live out the greatest commandment because Jesus chose to live it out for me!

Matt 22:37-38 37Jesus replied: " 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.'38This is the first and greatest commandment
