Lesson 464: The Love Edition

It's the weekend before Valentine's Day, Readers!
Time to turn up the love meter from Warm to Hot.

It's easy to write about love.
I love lots of things.

I can't think of anyone I love more than these three,

or this guy,

and this tribe.

Y'all know I love Tim McGraw.

He is in the movie The Shack
which opens on my birthday!

Click below to see the movie trailer.

Here is Tim and his lovely wife Faith Hill on the Ellen Show today 
in case you missed it.
I actually like Faith Hill. 
She is very talented 
and I'm glad to see a country music couple sticking together.
I can't wait to go see them both in concert in Cleveland this summer.

The movie The Shack is based on the book
by Paul Young.

The Shack by William P Young -Originally self-published as a fictional faith memoir of sorts for his children, this book has made it to the bestseller's lists. Mr. Young makes you look at your brokenness and God's goodness from a new angle...:

I purchased the book to read several years ago
and I couldn't get through it.
The book starts off with a terrible tragedy involving a child.
It is the story of a man who lost his faith
and found his way back to it again.

Maybe Today – My God, My Music, My Life:

Paul Young is an excellent writer.
I'm giving the book another chance,
and the words flow beautifully this time around.
Part of my avoidance of the story the first time
was my reluctance to face my own worst fears.

What if that happened to my child?
Would my faith sustain me or would I abandon it?

How could I go on?

Essentially, the book is about love.
Everything matters.

“…if anything matters then everything matters. Because you are important, everything you do is important. Every time you forgive, the universe changes; every time you reach out and touch a heart or a life, the world changes; with every kindness and service, seen or unseen, my purposes are accomplished and nothing will be the same again.” William P. Young, The Shack #quote:

Put the Lord first in your life
and  you will bear the fruit of the holy spirit:
and self-control.

You will see it,
and we all will see it.

I know I fail the Lord at times, but so many times I pray that someone will see Christ in me:

I love my city.
It's easy to find love when you love where you live.
Snow and all.

Especially donkeys!

Donkeys are very strong and intelligent & can live to over 50 years of age. A donkey is stronger than a horse of the same size. They have an incredible memory: They can recognize areas, and other donkeys, (they were with) even though 25 years may have elapsed!:
