A little more love and a little less self.

Well it's August {again}, and that means that school is just around the corner, Liberty and Grace have a birthday this month, and it's so very HOT outside!!  Last year at this time I was HUGE, I could barely see my feet, and I was eagerly anticipating having a baby!  Don't you wish you could make the hands on the clock move just a little bit slower? 
I came across this quote by Charles Spurgeon today, it is a beautiful quote about love.
"That love which would lead its beloved into sin is lust; it deserves not the name of love; but true love will ever seek the highest health and wholeness (which is holiness) of its object. Pure affection will grieve to see a fault, mourn over a folly, and seek to remove a blot. Perfect love seeks the perfection of the thing it loves."
 It kind of cuts to the heart, doesn't it?  Most people today are so absorbed in "self".  We don't know the first thing about the love we are to have for each other.  It's more about, "what's in it for me?"  We would do well to go back and read 1Corinthians 13.  Even better yet, memorize it and live it!

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer. {even if it is a little hot}
