Day 10: Love Does

We love because he first loved us.  1 John 4:19


This weekend the cookie making was on at our house! At one point I looked over our counter tops and laughed at the amount of ingredients everywhere.  And let me tell you, baking with two five-year old BOYS is crazy!!  Boys are messy by nature anyways and I am pretty sure that at one point their was more flour on the counter and the floor then in the bowl! lol


We finished most of the baking by yesterday afternoon and headed out to deliver a few cookie boxes filled with our treasures.  As we were driving up the lane to one of our neighbors homes Carter asked me, “Mommy, why do we give the goodies to others?”  I paused and then replied, “because love does honey…it gives.”

We were  given the perfect Gift and we get to love others because he first loved us.  It brings such joy to our hearts when we give, when we put love into action and become the hands and feet of Jesus.  It unlocks our hearts and love spills over.
