Live, Laugh, Love

LIVE every moment, LAUGH everyday, LOVE beyond words.

“whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away. - James 4:14 (NKJV)

Here is what I have seen: It is good and fitting for one to eat and drink, and to enjoy the good of all his labor in which he toils under the sun all the days of his life which God gives him; for it is his heritage. Ecclesiastes 5:18 (NKJV)

Caution: I wrote to you in my letter not to associate with sexually immoral people— not at all meaning the people of this world who are immoral, or the greedy and swindlers, or idolaters. In that case you would have to leave this world. But now I am writing to you that you must not associate with anyone who claims to be a brother or sister but is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or slanderer, a drunkard or swindler. Do not even eat with such people. What business is it of mine to judge those outside the church? Are you not to judge those inside? God will judge those outside. “Expel the wicked person from among you.” (1 Corinthians 5:9-13 NIV)

Psalm 118:24; 1Tim 6:17; Eccl 8:15; Eccl 9:7-8; Matt 6:34

 What have you been putting off? Celebrate each day with your spouse, children, family and friends. Make plans and keep them.


Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. (Philippians 4:4, 6 NIV)

Our mouths were filled with laughter, our tongues with songs of joy. Then it was said among the nations, “The Lord has done great things for them.” (Psalm 126:2 NIV)

Caution: Do not gloat when your enemy falls; when they stumble, do not let your heart rejoice, or the Lord will see and disapprove and turn his wrath away from them. (Proverbs 24:17, 18 NIV)

Job 8:21; Ephesians 5:4; Proverbs 15:13; Proverbs 17:22

Just look around you. If you look, you can find humor in your life everyday. Share a funny story or joke.


Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. (James 1:22 NIV)

Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth. (1 John 3:18 NIV)

Caution: Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them. For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world. (1 John 2:15, 16 NIV)

Matt 22:37-39; 1 John 4:7-8; Deut 6:5; Romans 12:9; Luke 6:27-36; John 13:34-35

SHOW people love. Give an anonymous gift, Make a card, bake cookies, pray.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, show us how to LIVE every precious moment You have gifted us. Let us enjoy this earthly life, until You bring us home. Please forgive us for any time that we have taken for granted. Lord, help us be light hearted in this fallen world. Help us to LAUGH at ourselves and bring joy and laughter to others. Show us how to LOVE beyond words. Use us Lord to accomplish Your holy will. In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.
