When we spell "Love" wrong

When I write an email to a close friend or my husband, I sign it "Love, Jen"

Sometimes I spell "love" wrong, like "LOve" or "lvoe."

But I've never had any of my friends or my husband point that out.

They simply accept my imperfect love, and love me back.

Just like Jesus does with all of us. 

Don't think your love for God has to be perfect--praying an hour or two a day, reading your Bible for twenty minutes non-stop, and telling every sinner you meet the plan of salvation--before He will love you back.

He loved us first, knowing our love would never be perfect while we live on this earth.

It helps if we simply say, "I accept Your love, Father, and I love you back." 


  1. This is a very encouraging post. Thank you!

  2. I believe once we understand that about Jesus, we can grow in our love for him and others. Hope your day is great!

  3. I love that simple statement your wrote at the end of this post. Accepting love that is unconditional has been a healing journey for me, as well as that I am deserving of love, even though my performance is far from perfect.


Oh, it's YOU! I'm so happy to see you here today, and look forward to reading your comments.
