Maybe in so doing, it will open their eyes to see the beauty of God through our love and concern for them. Cl~ist's love in our hearts is proof to the world that we are his disciples. John 13:34-35 - And so I am giving a new commandment to you now -- love each other just as much as I love you. Your strong love for each other will prove to the world that you are my disciples. I Thessalonians 3:12 - And may the Lord make your love to grow and overflow to each other and to everyone else, just as our love does toward you. (Living Bible) Have a happy Thanksgiving by doing something for some- one else and let them see the flower garden of our hearts through our good deeds of kindness and love. Hope to see you next week.
