What Love Looks Like

It's the 4th day of NaBloPoMo, and I was searching for a prompt for inspiration on I read one from earlier this year regarding "uncertainty."  Friends, uncertainty and I have become well acquainted over these last 2-3 years. My life recently has been a series of changes--some voluntary and some involuntary. So, I took all day to think about this topic and maybe it's just me, but I discovered something.  In the middle of uncertainty, one thing was more profound than anything else--certainty!

Life has its' way of teaching you, nurturing you and growing you. And oh boy, all three were hitting me hard and some days I still feel the pressure. (That's how my book After the Sixth Day was birthed.) Yet, while life was purging me what I like to call it, a couple of things remained the same--God and love.

I don't have children of my own, but the picture above shows some of my nieces and nephews. Jasmon, Zedra and Diedra are busy young ladies and if you're reading this I'm SURE they're going to respond to Auntie's email soon. Riiight?  :-) These beautiful faces are my source of unconditional love. They are brilliant, funny, creative, talented, caring etc etc.  And just seeing them and the faces of my family remind me of the "certainty" I'm always blessed with during the "uncertainty."

As I read back over my post, these verses came to mind:

The words once more show clearly that God will change what he has made. These are the things that can be shaken. Then only the things that cannot be shaken will remain. Therefore, we must be thankful that we have a kingdom that cannot be shaken. Because we are thankful, we must serve God with fear and awe in a way that pleases him.  
Hebrews 12: 27-28

Be Blessed & Remember to hold on to what's certain!
