This week is considered by some, including myself, to be a holy week. My Jewish extended family and friends will be celebrating Passover. And my household family will be celebrating Easter. It’s a time when I make an extra effort to recognize how much God loves us, and has demonstrated that love repeatedly throughout the generations.

If you’re feeling discouraged this week, I would encourage you to look up, take a breath, and know that there is a God in heaven who understands your struggles, and wants you to love him as much as he loves you.

Take care ❤️

Matthew 22:36-40

36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”

37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
