Wow, I haven't posted a Friday Freebie in a while. Or actually posted a Friday Freebie on a Friday. Or posted anything, really! Well, here's a Friday Freebie (finally) -- on a Sunday! (sidetone -- whenever I hear the phrase, "on a Sunday," I always think of that Citizens Bank commercial advertising Sunday hours, and an older gentleman says, "On a Sunday?!?!" At least I'm pretty sure it was Citizens.) Anyhow, today's freebie is another one of my favorite scriptures. It isn't the entirety of Romans 12:9 -- the scripture goes on to say, "hate what is evil; hold fast to what is good." Verse 10 is good too, "love one another with mutual affection; outdo one another in showing honor." Or, as the Message translation says, "Love from the center of who you are; don’t fake it. Run for dear life from evil; hold on for dear life to good. Be good friends who love deeply; practice playing second fiddle." Good words to live by! Print out this week's freebie here!
Speaking of genuine love, this video made by SheKnows, which showed kids pictures of Caitlyn Jenner, is wonderful. These kids are the definition of genuine love and empathy. "It's important to be yourself, because if you're not yourself, who are you?" Good point, kid! Genuine love is all about accepting people who have different backgrounds, beliefs, abilities -- and simply loving them. And these kids nail it. Go, kids! ♥
I hope that everyone had a wonderful weekend!
