SCRIPTURE MEMORY MONDAY. . .40 Days of Love. . .What Matters Most. . .2 Days til my Blogiversary Giveaway. . .Beautiful Weather of All Kinds!. . .

It's in between the 1st & 15th, or actually between the 15th & the 1st, but it IS

Scripture Memory Monday, because our church began 40 Days of Love last night, so I guess I will be trying to work on at least one simple verse every week, now.

The main verse for this week is:


I Corinthians 16:14


NLT


"Everything you do must be done with love."


NIV


"Do everything in love."



I repeated that verse with my pastor last night, then wrote it out this morning, prayed it, and meditated on it all day, and thought about it as I tried to teach, tried to reach my hard to reach students.


Following is the lyrics to a song that was sung at the church service last night,


"WHAT MATTERS MOST"



Filling this verse with superlative words


Making the most clever rhymes


Wouldn't amount to much


Just wouldn't count for much


If you can't read between lines


But I have discovered


I've finally uncovered


A most significant thing


It's a noble theme


What matters most


Is how much we love


What matters most


Is how much we give


What would it matter

If we just lived


Without loving our God


Without loving each other


Faith, hope and love, especially love


That's what matters most


What matters most


Once just a girl


In a curious world


Learning the meaning of life


Tell me what is the reason


And why do the seasons keep turning


The pages of time


I had to discover the things from above


For the days turn so quickly to years


Then they disappear


Not money, not power not fame or position


Don't want it, don't need it

don't give me religion


All I wanna hear All I wanna see All I wanna read about is


All I wanna live


All I wanna know


All I wanna be about is Love,


what matters most


Givin' love, what matters most


What matters most


Is how much we love


What matters most


Is how much we give


What would it matter if we just lived


Without loving our God


Without loving each other


What matters most is


How much we love


Setting our sights


On the needs of our brother


Loving our neighbor as we love ourselves


We give to the Lord


When we give to each other


Faith, hope and love, especially love


Faith, hope and love, especially love


That's what matters most


What matters most





God's love for us is just so amazing. If we just let it overflow from our hearts to others, it is so amazing what LOVE can do!

I have really enjoyed our Oklahoma weather this past week. Last week was beautiful Spring weather, then on Saturday, the "First Day of Spring", God gave us a beautiful snow again! Then today, it is "beautiful Spring" again! Just so incredible the change from yesterday to today, but both days were beautiful pictures, the snow and the flowers!

  2. Good morning Sandy!

    I do follow your blog.

    I blog as well and this came about because I was already writing Higher Grounds due to God's prompting, for about a year. Then my husband is the one that came to me after so many women were encouraging me to place the writings in a book, similiar to a devotional. My husband came to me asking me to start a blog and allow those in the world to read what God was placing on my heart.

    This week I am memorizing Numbers 6:24-26 NIV

    The LORD bless you and keep you; the LORD make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you; the LORD turn his face toward you and give you peace. Numbers 6:24-26 NIV


    Love to you,
    Yolanda
