: a feeling of strong love or loyaltydevotion

: the fact or state of being ardently dedicated and loyal

PRAY: Thank you, Jesus, for your sacrifice and devotion to me. I pray that as I approach this election, you would show me how to demonstrate your love and devotion to the lost through my vote. Reveal to me, Lord, how I can lay my life down for the sake of others as I consider issues and candidates on the ballot. May my heart be devoted to you and to my “neighbors” in America as I vote this year.

1 John 3:16

“This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters.”

Author: Dr. Mary Ellen Schoonover

Well loved! I have been blessed all my life to be surrounded by family and friends that nurtured, supported and loved me into the person that I have become. That love has sustained me throughout whatever circumstance I have found in life. It is the greatest gift that one can give and the essential ingredient to living life with no regrets. I reached this conclusion while lying in a hospital bed on life support for 70 days. Under those circumstances I dealt with the essential ingredients of my life. What was important? Why was I alive? What did my life mean?
