Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

December 17, 2011 (Love is the key)

Love is the golden key
that fits all locks!

“Many dull, unsusceptible ears,
when other charmers have
failed to charm, have been arrested
and won by the music of kindness.
By it . . .
old-age renews its youth,
sick pillows are smoothed,
burdens are eased,
tears are turned into smiles,
dirges are turned into songs.”
- John MacDuff

Show kindness and practice goodness.

“Cold words freeze people,
and hot words scorch them,
and bitter words make them bitter,
and wrathful words make them wrathful.
Kind words also produce their image on men’s souls;
and a beautiful image it is.
They smooth, and quiet, and comfort the hearer.”
- Blaise Pascal

This was a really fitting devotional for that picture as the little girl is wearing a pillow case dress made by some of the ladies who were on my team. :-)

Have a great week!!
