Walking In Love

Luke has a new thing he likes to say, when we are out walking around.  He comes up to me, takes my hand and leans over and says, "Mama, we are walking in love."

Walking in love.

Think about that.  We are walking together, side by side, hand holding.  Feeling around us the love that surrounds us, in those peaceful moments together.  We are really 'walking in love'.

Mother and son, Mama and Best Pal, Shanyn and Luke.  Two people, walking together in a wonderful place called love.  Whether we are walking to check cows, walking to toss stones in 'Quack's Pond' or just walking because it is what we feel like doing - it is those times that we just feel love.

1 Corintians 13:13 "Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love."

We talk about God, about His love, and how it is around us all the time.  How God loves us and creates wonderful things for us, how He gave us the greatest gifts of all.  How God is walking with us, He is also walking in love.

Jesus walked every step in love, He had the greatest love.  He came here to save us, to walk with us, in love, to feel our steps.  Noble steps, faltering steps, brave steps, fearful steps...every single step of the way He was there, in love, walking with us.

Psalms 119:105 "Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path."

God's word is the light for our path, it is the guide for our way.  It is the ultimate gift for those walking in love.

Faith in our path, that the steps we do not see are there, prepared for us.

Hope that through our journey, our walk in that precious love, is the one which will lead us through to Him.

Love, the light, the way, the path, the steps before and after us.  Love is how we show our fellowship, love is the expression of our faith, love is the words of our testimony, love in a sincere rebuke.  Love is the way we need to walk.

It is Mother's Day.  For me every day with Luke is Mother's Day because he is such a joy and a blessing.  He was my surprise and is my shining light.  I love walking in love with him, and every night as I tuck him in I take the time to pray.  I pray for him, I pray my thanks for having him in my life.  I check on him before I go to sleep, and say my final prayer for the night, "Thank you God!"

Happy Mother's Day for mothers, those who mother and for all of those who love the mothers in their lives.
