As I read my Bible this week I ran across some verses that struck me...

1 John 3:1 See how very much our Father loves us, for he calls us his children, and that is what we are!

1 John 4:16b God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them.

And then during our band devotional time this week we were reminded of...

John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal live.

I'm blessed to know a life filled with love.  There are days when I wonder HOW I even ended up where I am today.  

I'm married to a man who loves me, is committed to our life together, and seeks to make me happy.  

Our children are beautiful and healthy.  And they love to snuggle with their mom which makes my heart happy!  

We not only live close to our extended family, we have close relationships and, we get to have a front row seat to watching our nieces and nephews grow up.

My life is filled with friendships that sometimes feel more like family.   They are people who celebrate the joys of life with us and encourage and pray us through the tough times.

Yes, I am blessed and on any given day it's not difficult for me to recognize how loved I am!  It is for these reasons that I heart Sinclairville!

It was during worship on Sunday when we sang Jesus Messiah that it really began to hit me...

Yes, I am loved by my husband, children, family, and friends.  But before any of them could love me and long before any of them did, I was loved first by God!  He loved me enough to send His son to die for me, and He loves me enough to call me one of His children...and THAT is love so amazing!  

Take a moment and soak in His love for you today...


  1. We are blessed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Notice all the exclamation points! I must really mean it!!!!
