Broken and Spilled Out


           When we give of ourselves, we are rewarded back... usually more.  People are like flowers, when we water them with love and kindness, they perk up and stand up straighter.  We all need sprinkled with a compliment or two and you will usually get one in return.
          'Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity. Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.' Colossians 4:5-6
         'Mary, one of Jesus' followers, poured out a bottle of nard, an extremely expensive perfume, on his feet, prompting concern from others, but praise from Jesus himself.'  Mary literally watered Jesus with a perfume.  Her sacrifice was her way of showing her love to Jesus.
          Do you sacrifice your time and possessions to show love to others?


  1. You give us a watering every day with your blog, Thank you. Sometime this summer you will have written over a thousand blog, what a way to show your love to others. Love you ...........Dad

  2. Great way to think about it Angie. And I agree with what your dad said!
    betsy p.

  3. You definitely practice what you preach. I can not come away from you without feeling watered. What a difference it would make if all Christians really put this into practice. Good encouragement foe me.
