Unconditional Love

This past Sunday, in church, our message was about {Unconditional Love}
 It really got me thinking...

God loves us {unconditionally}...meaning no strings attached.
He loves us, no matter our sins, cause they are forgiven. No matter our flaws, cause he sees past those and no matter our status in life, rich...poor...healthy...sick.

Who can actually say they love their neighbors and their friends unconditionally?
I will be the first to say I am not good at it. I have a problem finding the flaws with people and dwelling on them, instead of remembering that I too have flaws.
I am {NOT} perfect and I have my fair share of flaws, but God loves me for me. He loves my husband, even though he leaves the toilet seat up and bites his nails. I say I love my husband unconditionally, but it wasn't till the morning that I really thought about it. 
I do love him {unconditionally}...right?
YES, I do!
I love him, even though he has some quirks, that I know I will never be able to change.
But Gods unconditional love for us is much stronger than any human could ever produce.

God is amazing!
He doesn't say, "I love you, you, and you, but you...I am not so sure, you aren't my idea of 'perfect"
He loves us all unconditionally!

How loosely do we used the term 'love.'

"I love that dress you are wearing"
"I love your new hair color"

I do this all the time. I rarely say, "I like your new outfit," I say " I love it"
{Really?? You can't {LOVE} anything that can't love you back}
If you want unconditional love, you need someone/something to love you back.

We can't replicate God's unconditional love, but we can better ourselves to Love thy neighbor and friends unconditionally, in our own way.
Try seeing past others flaws and love them no matter what you think is 'wrong' with them or what they could do better in life.

Love from God is {unconditional} and that is AMAZING!

Here are a few pictures to top off my post!

Have a great day!
