The love of God is greater than my tongue can express!

I have been poundering the verses in John 15 where it says
"I am the true VINE and my Father is the Gardner. He lops off every branch that doesn't produce. and he prunes those branches that bear fruit for even larger crops."
(Hum.... even though something is good and producing, he may say no not good enough I will prune it so it will by greater; sort of like Lowell puned my flowers, I thought they looked great, but he cut them all back I said no but, guess what, they came out looking more beautiful!!!!)
And than it goes on to say: "Take care to live in me and LET me live in you" For a branch (us) can not produce fruit when severed from the vine. Nor can you be fruitful apart from me."

Have you ever wondered why you sometimes run out of LOVE for your family, children, friends, church family, loved ones even those who you work with. Could it be that we are not connected each day with the vine?
Could it be that we are running on LOW fumes? He says to take care to live in me and to let Him live in me. If I am not connected with the vine I will run out of love, cause GOD IS LOVE!!
"1John 2:5 says who ever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him."
and is 1 John 4:16 says "FOR GOD IS LOVE and anyone who LIVES IN LOVE is LIVING IN HIM..." Wow God says let me live in you and you will have love cause God is love.
AND In this time of life when things are so uncertain, he goes on to tell us that we have no fear of someone who loves us perfectly Vs.18 and if we are afraid it shows that we are not fully convinced that he really loves us. So you see our love for Him comes as a result of his loving us first...... What an awsome God we serve.
Now I am ready for the day. Connected to the vine! love you all

well it has been a long time since I have posted anything.
We were gone for 2 weeks to covered bridge festival and am happy to be
home again.
I am not caught up on all the work but will get there.
we are getting TJ max and Mashall stores potpourri out first and than on to
decorating the stores for Christmas.
While we were gone God gave me a verse to ponder on
Psalms 10o:1 shout with JOY, before the Lord O earth.
As my tired bones rolled out of bed each morning I shouted for Joy in my head
and pushed my self to get going. One day was really hard. We had 2 ladies come in and
I noticed them with there hands full of items and I got busy ringing people up and lost track of them. I then saw them in another booth and called Lowell to hurry back from lunch. I followed the ladies and found them putting some items in there bag from that booth and all my items were in the bag to. Shout to the Lord with JOY ran through my mind. How do I do that in a time like this? Praise is the opposite of gripping and grumbling, so I simply said pay for the items you took and leave, you are not sorry for getting caught quite saying that you are sorry You are just sorry that you got caught but I want you to know Jesus loves you!
Oh that hit home, how many times am I that way also. Just sorry I got caught for doing wrong!
So I shouted for JOY that the Lord was showing me again how much I am really rotten to the core but with God I am perfect in HIM! Praise God
Shout with Joy before the Lord O earth! Obey him gladly; come before Him singing with JOY!!
In these hard time we need to focus on our Lord!
