Cousins



We all love so differently, don't we? What is meaningful to me might be corny or crazy to you. We love by taking the time to figure out how to love in the way that means the most to the other person.

Some people like words - some like presents - others respond to acts of serving or the expression of affection.

For our 2 year old grandsons the big deal right now is learning to share what they really like. And, it seems that what the other guy has always looks more fun than what THEY have in their hand.

Sometimes Oscar will just spontaneously hug Jack! It startles Jack a little but I think that Jack is starting to 'get' why Oscar is hugging him. They are learning how to love.

I John 3:18 - "Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and Truth."

Let's pray together that we learn how to love people - not how WE want to be loved, but how THEY need to be loved.

Just something to think about....

I love the last line... "not how WE want to be loved, but how THEY need to be loved", but how hard it is. So often we are selfish and either lack the desire or the ability to love others the way they need to be loved.
