Shine His Love

Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins. -1 Peter 4:8

Are you so caught up in the busyness of life and the world that you are forgetting to let your love shine? If we aren’t careful, we can easily get swept up in the day to day, overlooking and missing the most important opportunities to give and show the love of Christ. These moments are everywhere. And if there’s one thing we could all use, it’s little (or a lot) more love. Sometimes, spreading that love can be as simple as a smile. Let’s be the light that brightens and changes lives. And let’s make sure that everything we do and say, is done in love.

Dear Lord, let us keep our eyes and hearts open to these moments and remember why we were put on this earth. I pray that we can be a vessel of your love, shining bright for those who need it most.


In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven. -Matthew 5:16

Love Written In the Trees

I know it’s not Majestic Marvel Monday, but this is one of my favorite pictures I’ve captured this year and it seems fitting. Perhaps, it’s the simplicity of the photo. Perhaps, it’s the shear reminder of His love. His beauty and love are everywhere. It’s even written in the trees. Don’t forget to open your eyes today and everyday, for that matter. What gifts of beauty has He blessed you with? Take a peek around. And remember, His love never changes. Happy Valentine’s Day!
