This week’s Take Five links are all about love. Love for God, for others and even for those we don’t know. Even in difficult times, we can see God’s hand through our circumstances and in his word, and that knowledge allows us to share his grace with others. What are some ways that you can show love, both to Jesus and to the people in your life this week?

“In the ongoing wake of our loss, we honor the life that God created and her perfection in His presence in Heaven. We have dedicated a verse of scripture to each of our children, and this is Alexa’s: “Worthy are You, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and praise. For You created all things, and by Your will they exist and were created.” (Revelations 4:11) What this means to me is that even though we would have chosen differently, we still praise our Lord and thank Him for His creation and gift that is Alexa Rose.” Finish this post here.
