Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God. Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
Phil 4:6-7

Love one another


Christ Washing the Feet of His Disciples (detail)
c. 1547

As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you; abide in my love.
If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father's commandments and abide in his love.
These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full.
This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.
Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
You are my friends if you do what I command you.
No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all that I have heard from my Father I have made known to you.
You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide; so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you.
This I command you, to love one another.  John 13: 9-17

If you can, make time today to read the Gospel of John chapters 13 to the end of chapter 18. I think there may be no more beautiful written word than the Gospel of John.



  1. I totally agree with you! God bless you and yours this Holy Week.

  2. Hi Barbara, I love the Gospel of John! Have a Blessed Easter!


I appreciate your comments -- sometimes I feel like I'm talking to myself!
