The Caskey Family

Photos of Love!

My heart has been heavy and I have shed many tears recently as we witness some love tragedies in some very close circles: divorce, abandonment, adultery, cut off relationships. I find myself praying for the return of Christ more these days.

In order to stir some sort of hope in my heart, I meditate on the deep love Jesus had for us and how counter-culture HIS love is! His love says that we love even though we have been hurt or might be hurt in the future. His love requires us to sacrifice, to lay down our lives, to forget ourselves and love hurting and hurtful people with an abandon and selflessness that PROVES that we are bondslaves to the One who displayed love PERFECTLY.

“For this is the message which you have heard from the beginning, that we should love one another; We know love by this, that He laid down His life for us; and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. Little children, let us not love with word or with tongue, but in deed and truth.” 1 John 3:11, 14, 16

And I treasure the gift of love God has graciously grown in our family of six. God has chosen to allow us to add Jonathan, my little brother to our family while he finishes up the last few weeks of high school. The sweet love our family (imperfectly) shows is a treasure. I don’t deserve to live inside this circle.
