Her blog post not only inspired me, but it gave me hope and joy and a satisfaction of knowing that the world is not all bad. :)
Then this morning, in my quiet time I saw some verses that reminded me of Jeanessa.
James 3:17-18 (The Message Translation)
Real wisdom, God's wisdom, begins with a holy life and is characteriszed by getting along with others. It is gentle and reasonable, overflowing with mercy and blessings, not hot one day and cold the next, not two-faced. You can develop a healthy and robust community that lives right with God and enjoy results only if you do the hard work of getting along with each other, treating each other with dignity and honor.
Has anyone ever really thought about the fact that as Christians we are called to love one another in order that we would then be recognized as followers of Jesus based on that characteristic?
Well, Jeanessa.. I just wanted you to know that I recognized Jesus in you.... and I'm so honored to call you "sister".
