Pope Francis really kisses the babies on his walkabouts in the crowds. He kisses the infirm and hugs those in need of a hug. What a change to the papacy and the face of the Roman Catholic Church. As an Evangelical, this is something I never expected in my lifetime. Too cynical for my own good, after years of studying Church history through the ages. God is clearly at work here and the world is stunned but blessed.
Oh to be love and love right back! Incomparable joy! We need to keep family and friends close – loving them as we expect to be love, exceeding expectations where we can. Why? It is God’s idea and the best script to follow! He loved us first before we could understand His love – indescribable, unfailing, unfathomable, unwavering and all-conquering, every day!
Keep them close.
