Welcome to Saturday, my friends!
If you are a regular reader here, you have probably gotten used to the Weekend Gathering of Awesome known lovingly as That Thing I Do Now where I compile blog posts from around the interwebs for your reading pleasure. That weekly edition takes a bit of a sabbatical during the month of October, but I promise I will get right back to it next month!
For this month, Saturdays and Sundays will bring you lighter posts... a Scripture or quote, maybe a song or simply a photograph that inspires and gives a bit of rest. After all, it is Sabbath, and the weekend y'all, and one of the biggest Truths that He has taught me that we all can tend to forget is this:
We forget about the importance of rest!
So for October, while I will be posting over the weekends... there will be no heavy burdens, or even lots of words. Just a little something to keep us going and to encourage us along the way!
So today, our first Saturday together, I thought I would ask you a question:
What are some things that are true, that you sometimes forget?
I'd love to hear in the comments below!
Come on, friends... let me know I am not alone here!
I'll go first!
One Truth that I sometimes forget is that the Gospel is simple.
We tend to make it hard... but in reality, it's pretty amazingly simple:
Love God. Love People.
I know, right? I mean sure - there is more to it and we could draw dividing lines but really, what it comes down to - (even Jesus said so!) is this: Love God. Love People.
I said it was simple --not easy!
But boy do we complicate it and make it hard!
Now it's your turn! Share in the comments below a Truth that you know, but sometimes forget!
I feel like this is the best place to tell you that there will be a giveaway or two on the blog this month. Although not so much today... but you can look for that fun to come, and in the meantime, jump right in to the conversation!
