I read a quote about military wives recently:
“She plants annuals for herself and perennials for those who come behind her.”
And above all, love the way Christ loves ... “Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ” (Galations 6:2).
I promise, the soil is rich.
Is there someone around you God has laid on your heart to reach out to?
This week, how can you be intentional in your existing relationships?
What are some ways you can let down your own walls as you reach out to others?
Thank You, Lord, for being God over every season in my life. Through the changes, You are faithful. I praise You for the people You’ve placed in my life for this season, and for all the ones before. Help me to always put on compassion toward others. Let me love people like You do, so that they might see Your face. Give me the strength to be vulnerable in my relationships with others, even when it’s tough. Thank You, Father. Amen.

So beautiful, Molly. I am so blessed you reached out to ask me to ride with you to Allume and back! Who knew we'd become Insta Friends?! I know God works in amazing ways, but he just leaves me breathless every time he brings me together with someone new. xo
Amy, it's a date!
Molly I sent this to my sister-in-law. My brother was a fighter pilot for the Air Force. I saw this. Thank you. Bless you for planting perennials. Next year at Allume I want to share a cup of coffee and long talk.
