Loving As God Loves Me

by Michelle Demeree

Do you know your inner self?

Do you love YOU as Jesus loves YOU?

To love as Jesus loves, I must find faith

I must find faith to pray to God.

I  must work on being the person God wants me to be.

Try to know your feelings.

Then let’s go with God and trust his love for us.

Then we can love ourselves as God love us.

Eating fish
We all know that when you eat fish you will usually come across a bone or two no matter how carefully the fish has been filleted.  We also know that the bones aren't digestible and should be spit out.  Fish bones, in fact, can be dangerous; but that fact never kept me from eating and appreciating

A history lesson
Over the past months, I've discovered the classics from Sir Walter Scott, James Fenimore Cooper, St. Augustine to Andrew Murray.  Of course, most of these volumes were written in the early 1800's.  Unlocking the labyrinth of historical fact wrapped around the old English prose of that earlier cent
