Gift * Advent Whispers


The end of all things is near.
Therefore be clear minded and self-controlled
so that you can pray.

Above all, 
love each other deeply,
because love covers over a multitude of sins.

Offer hospitality to one another 
without grumbling.

Each one should use whatever gift 
he has received to serve others, 
faithfully administering God's grace 
in its various forms.
~  1 Peter 4:7 - 10  ~




we're surrounded by 
the broken, the downtrodden
who yearn 
for us to share
the grace and mercy
God has
on us


  1. Your Advent Whispers have been a delight to see and read. Thank you.

    1. Debby, thanks. I know this is an incredibly busy season of ministry for you. That you'd leave a little note is such a grace.

      Bless you, girl ...

  2. I don't comment every day, Linda, but know I am enjoying these Advent whispers. :) This reminds me of how when we have received God's Gift of Love in Jesus, it won't stay passive in our hearts, but the love He gives will pour out to others around us. Thank you for all the thought-provoking photos and verses. :) They truly have made this Advent season more meaningful. Christmas blessings and hugs!

    1. Oh, I love that these little offerings have spoken to you, Trudy! Thanks for letting me know, friend.

      Christmas blessings to you, to yours ...

  3. I love how Peter reminds us to use our gifts for others and for God. Blessings, Linda!

    1. We do tend to cling tightly to what we perceive as ours, don't we ...

  4. What a blessing that God has chosen gifts to bless us with! And the greatest blessing is sharing those gifts!
