There is no greater love than the love of Jesus.
Thanks to an online friend, Susie, who posted ABC Adoration, I was inspired to return to something I started quite some time ago. I hope your soul will be refreshed as mine was as I focused on the endless depth of Jesus’ love for us. As I worked on it, my drooping spirit lifted and my storm-tossed emotions quieted.
Please feel free to share in the comments another adjective to describe Jesus’ love and a Bible verse to go with it. There is no end to the ways He loves!
