A Holy, Messy Love

Our kids’ elementary school uses the bucket concept from the book How Full is Your Bucket to explain how important it is that we continually build up the people around us. I was surprised when even Zack the other day said to one of our other kids who gave him a compliment, “Aww, that filled my bucket!”

How to Make Your Kids (and Husband) Feel Like Rock Stars

What are some other ideas you have for quick, fun ways to show some love?

Today’s verse for reflection is from Philippians:

So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy,  complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind.  Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves.  Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.

Philippians 2:1-4

Today’s challenge: Do something simple to show someone close to you how much you love them.
