Love Your Neighbor

As the days to Christmas countdown, let us be reminded that

“Christmas it seems can’t be bought in a store, Christmas, perhaps means a little bit more.”

Let us love and embrace the unlovable this Christmas. Let us look around and notice the lesson in the star that shined so bright in the sky 2000 years ago.

The message was love. Love came to earth to teach us how to love and love we must.

We must love.

 

Welcome to WFW! Our next to LAST Word Filled Wednesday of 2011!!

There are very few rules, in fact the beauty of this ministry is the creative expression that God reveals Himself thorough. We marvel at the creativity that participants post with this meme. We encourage the ” post behind the picture,” or the reflections that many of the participants share. We ask that non-biblical resources not be used.

WFW is not about books, authors, artists.. it’s about God and HIS WORD ONLY. WFW is about celebrating the gift of creativity through God’s Word.

Join myself and some other wonderful ladies as we share by signing into to the Link below!

Lori MacMath

Lori's daily mantra includes praying, "I will take it Lord, ALL you have to give," and a commitment to live out Colossians 3:17 daily. It's her prayer that the energy that fills her spirit be with her till her dying breath! Nearly two years ago, Lori traded the sauna of the Deep South, for the snow of Chicago. After 19 years in Atlanta, Lori has bought herself a coat and some winter boots and is ready for the NEXT adventure at Harvest Bible Chapel / Chicago West. She navigates this road with her husband of 26 years and they have 3 children, ranging in age from 17 - 22. She seeks daily to be creative and use the gifts the Lord has given her. With the heart of an artist and a spirit to live intentionally missional, Lori strives daily to see Him in all that surrounds her. Encouraging women on their daily walk with the Lord is her passion! She has recently stepped out into NEW territory with her husband in the inner city of Chicago. She is on staff at Harvest Chicago West, in the Austin neighborhood, where the Lord is opening her eyes to Urban Ministry and Discipleship. Lori and her husband also have a Business as Missions endeavor that helps empower women and missionaries around the world. She would be HONORED if you'd visit Hope Products International where providing HOPE to the world through fair trade and sustainable products. Lori has served in a number of roles over the years, ranging from Camp/Leadership Adventure Coordinator, a mid week Bible club for elementary and upper elementary students in a local public elementary school as well as being on staff at her church. She is excited in this season to watch the Lord unfold HIS plans for the next step on the journey. Helping others, loving others where they are and seeing the transforming power of Jesus is at the heart of all she does. Her heart for children, women and all those on the broken road is at the core of everything she does. She LOVES playing graphically and encouraging others through visual arts, and her passion for Discipleship is at the heart of all she does. It truly inspires her and fills her spirit.

  1. Blessings Lori… And by this,they will know we are CHRISTIANS, ones who follow Christ and celebrate Christmas… this is the meaning of Christmas… LOVE! So beautifully shared by you! (I may not be able to leave a comment on “All You have to Give” but I can and will here)… All You have to Give… LOVE and you do, you reflect and shine Jesus! And He gives all HE IS… our BEST Christmas Gift wrapped in love and unwrapped each time we pour His love as your message says “to our neighbors”… and who is our neighbor? Not just those that live near us, or in our part of community… not just those that are easy to love (Luke 10:25-37) every Samaritan… Lori, you have given us exactly what we MUST do… thank you for sharing His love with me… Love, hope, peace, Joy…
