Thankful Tuesdays!

Last Tuesday,  I was thankful for friends,  today I am thankful for  LOVE  from the best friend one could ever have.  That friend is Jesus!

In the book, “Carolina Mist” by Mariah Stewart, one of the characters says to the main heroine:
“When you get right down to it, Love is all there is.  Everything else –Money, property, material possessions, -- can vanish in the blink of an eye.  But Love is always inside you.  It will always be with you.  No one can steal it from you or rob you of its joys.  No amount of money can buy it for you, nor can it be sold on the open market.  It cannot be swept away by flood or lost to fire.  It is totally portable, costs nothing, but outlasts everything else you will ever possess. There is nothing else that is yours, than cannot be taken away from you, except your memories, of course.  Even death is powerless in the face of love.  And if you do not understand these basics of truths, then I greatly fear for your future, and pray for your soul.”
Mother Thersa’s wrote:
Who Jesus is to me?
Jesus is the Word, to be spoken.
Jesus is the Truth, to be told.
Jesus is the Way, to be walked.
Jesus is the Light, to be lit.
Jesus is the Life, to be lived.
Jesus is the Love, to be loved.
Jesus is the Joy, to be shared.
Jesus is the Sacrifice, to be offered.
Jesus is the peace, to be given.
Jesus is the Hungry, to be fed.
Jesus is the Thirsty, to be satiated.
Jesus is the Naked, to be clothed.
Jesus is the sick, to be healed.
Jesus is the Lonely, to be loved.

I am so grateful that Jesus Loves ME!  Yes ME!  With all my faults and shortcomings, I am perfect, for I am created in his image, and with a Friend like him beside me, guiding my vessel, I can sail through this life, knowing I am as good as I can be.  
He  Loves YOU also.  With a Love that is all encompassing and all forgiving.
