Short update on Ava: She has been so sick today, it's breaking my heart! She is all snotty (literally!) It's like a bomb every time she sneezes, she's fussy, and just wants her mommy all day, it may sound cute, but it's really sad. I hope she gets better soon. Things we've never used before that we're using today: Vix baby rub, and "herbs for kids"... I think we're making progress (I'll let you know!)
So I've been meaning to blog about last Saturday, but things just keep getting in the way. We go to a Saturday night service at our church, and our friend Steve Page and my husband TJ are going to be teaching, but right now it's Steve's turn. He's been teaching on 2 John for the past two weeks, and I have been learning some simple yet amazing things through his teaching.
His main points were TRUTH and LOVE. Truth and love are both interwoven in all John's books. One of the main things that got my attention was Truth's definition, it's not just a correct statement, or something that is "right", truth is a person, Jesus Christ. And as we went on in the text, it was amazing how you can just replace truth with Jesus Christ and it would be the same difference. Truth (Jesus) is the same yesterday, today and forever. The truth (Jesus) is in us and is eternal. You will know the truth (Jesus) and the truth (Jesus) will set you free. Truth (Jesus) is our basis for unity.
Love is the definition of God, if you want to know what love is, learn more about who God is!
Grace and peace and mercy will be ours in Love and Truth (Jesus Christ!). Truth (Jesus) and love is the basis on which everything good is built.
There was a lot more, but this truth (:]) is what blew my mind. God is Love! Jesus Christ is Truth!
