The Power of Love (Part I)

My dear blog-friends — I read the following blog entry recently and it really got me thinking. To be honest, it nailed me in a few areas of my heart and life. I encourage you to read the entire article with as unhindered a mind as possible. (There will be time for criticism later.) For now, allow God to use it in whatever ways He sees fit.

I’m sharing it with you that it might inspire you toward your goals, of which I hope LOVE is supreme.

In Love,
Mark
