A Couple of Days

I Cor 16:13~~"Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave,be strong.  
Let all that you do be done with love."

Sometimes we do things because 1) we have to,  2) for the job we have, 3) because no one else will do it, 4) because someone has told us to, 5) because we think it's the right thing to do, 6) because it has to be done before the next part can be started and the list goes on.  There are so many reasons.

But no matter the reason, we can do it with love.  That's sometimes difficult to remember when we're doing something that we find objectionable, but if we consider the blessings we have it's a little easier to squeeze love into the equation.  The blessing of health, food in the fridge, clothes in the closet, shoes on our feet, roof over our heads, friends, etc.  When we remember how blessed we are, it's easier to do "what we do" with love.  It often takes practice.  

I need to practice more.

The past two days of my Photo-a-Day challenge have been fun.  I can't believe it's day 23 and I haven't missed a day yet.  I'm not usually so diligent.

Your Shoes:  I don't have very attractive shoes, especially for the winter.  Just a pair of year-old sneakers and an old pair of semi-dress shoes that I wear to church once in a while.  After giving it some thought I decided to wear my boots.  Ho, hum.  The caption is "is it spring yet?"

Something Old:  Once upon a time my husband's father and uncle ran two dairies that delivered milk to homes in the area.  My husband isn't sentimental, but I thought it would be cool to have some of their original milk bottles for the kids.  So I've been collecting them whenever I find them.  There don't see to be too many of them around, but I keep looking.
