Without Love I am a Noisy Gong....

I am so intrigued with heaven and people's life and death experiences. Over and over again, people shared how they experienced Christ love.

I am reading Approaching the Heart of Prophecy by Graham Cooke. The first chapter is all about love. If I never did anything else but learn to receive God's love and give it out then this was one of the most life impacting books for me. I am praying that somehow over the next 20 years while my children live with me that I impart that to them. I am not sure that anything else matters as much. It is so simple, but so complex. Ingrid Betancourt was captured by Colombian guerrillas for seven years. Incredible woman - she is living God's love. She did not want to take bitterness from the jungle, but instead her response is to forget and forgive. "God was with me from the first day to the end of this horrible experience."

"Bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you....if you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them....but love your enemies and do good....for He Himself is kind to ungrateful and evil men. Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful." Luke 6: 28, 32, 35-36
