The troubles in life are not the struggles themselves. They are the false notion of separation we feel. The Lord recently reminded me that nothing can separate me from His love. NOTHING. Romans 8:38 – Martha L Shaw
For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, Romans 8:38

Freedom is an illusion!
It is only in surrendering
our heart, our soul, and all that we are
to the Lord that we ever know
what it truly is to be free!

And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’
There are so many sources for defining “stylish” for us and yet I see a world defined more by insecurity. It may seem odd to some, but the verse from Matthew immediately came to mind as I considered this. Does the length of my hair, my nails, or my nose define either my style or my ability to receive and share love?
It is no accident that the verse places equal importance on loving our neighbors and self love! I do not believe we can serve the Lord and reflect Him to others if we do not love all whom God created and this includes ourselves. Obeying the verse above supersedes any suggestion or definition of “stylish” we are urged to reflect!
REFLECT HIM! REFLECT LOVE!

Your sweet whispers heal my heart and soul
And turn the tempter’s shouts to silence.
My leaden feet now dance with pure joy,
For all my burdens are yoked
Together with you!
