"Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children, and live in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us." Ephesians 5:1-2



Yesterday we celebrated Ben's Birthday. Ben is Terry's dad. We made shrimp, catfish, Cold Pea Salad, French Fries, and Italian bread with olive oil, tomatoes and cheese. YUMM! Early in the morning, Terry and I made Kolache's for Ben. He loves apricot, and that is what we made. Working side by side, most of the morning in the kitchen, we put together a yummy birthday spread!

THEN, in the afternoon, Terry took me to the gun range where I shot a 22 pistol for the first time. I hit the target and he says I did really well. I shot a box of ammunition; I think that was fifty shots. For a first time I was pretty pleased. I had never done this before.

Humm, what did I mean by "me me me" What does it all mean?

YOU YOU YOU....set some time aside for you today. Do something for yourself, or enjoy a quiet break on your won. Make this your mini retreat and relax knowing you are beloved of God. He loves you NOT for what you do; Not for what you look like; Not for where you live; Not for how you dress or act. There are no conditions placed on His love for you. Respect yourself and the gifts He has given you. Spend some time for you today and charge your batteries!

Once you are back at full power, you have more to offer others. Pass it on....

You are God's beloved.


“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 6:23
