"He Pours Out His LOVE" - 01/23/17 - Exodus 16-18

"And Moses, Aaron, and Hur went to the top of the hill.  It turned out that whenever Moses raised his hands, Israel was winning, but whenever he lowered his hands, Amalek was winning.  But Moses' hands got tired. So they got a stone and set it under him. He sat on it and Aaron and Hur held up his hands, one on each side. So his hands remained steady until the sun went down."  (17:1012)

"This is way too much for you - you can't do this alone."(18:18)    

Work was finally done and I smiled as I pulled the truck and trailer into the drive, seeing my sister's car parked in the drive.  Coming into the house I discovered she was surprising me with the gift of clean windows.  It was her day off and she was washing my windows, because they desperately needed it and she knew I hadn't the time. 
Even though it has been a couple of months, I still marvel at the outside coming in through the clean glass.  I smile seeing the little handprints of our Charlie and Ella.  Handprints which wouldn't have shown up before she cleaned them. How blessed and grateful I am by her beautiful gifts of LOVE.

"This is way too much for you - you can't do this alone."
His Word today affirmed once more - we can not do life all alone.
How much I love having relationship with others who know they are always welcome into my life at any time.  any moment.  For spending time of just connecting.  laughing.  venting.  sharing.  and talking about our ABBA. 
I will carry in my treasures, seeing the inside out beauty of so many loved ones He surrounds me with. Those in my life who cover me with prayer.  with encouragement.  with accountability.  with bright eyes.  with hugs.  with love.  Those in my life whom I see Christ shining through and am honored, blessed they have chosen to share life with me, even if only for a season. 

I love the strangers He puts into my life, even for just a moment, revealing to us we are siblings through our Christ. I love the gift of meeting my Divine Appointments and recognizing the gift of LOVE our ABBA is sending through yet another.  

So many moments I am blown away when He opens my eyes to The LOVE pouring out from Him through those who let me know - I am not alone. 

We need each other - to share life and all that comes with it.  Our ABBA designed us to need, interact with each other, but most of all -  we were made with the need of Him.
How much I love belonging to our ABBA and His Family. 
Such a gift of LOVE to share with one another.
