GRACE AND PEACE TO YOU FROM GOD OUR FATHER
AND THE LORD JESUS CHRIST.
( GALATIANS 1:3 * NIV )

Dear Friend,
Now Grace means the freely given, “unmerited favor
and love of GOD,” given to HIS Children!  Thus; 
GOD
DEMONSTRATES HIS OWN LOVE FOR US IN THIS:
WHILE WE WERE STILL SINNERS, CHRIST DIED FOR
US.   ( ROMANS 5:8 )

Therefore; DEAR FRIENDS, SINCE GOD SO LOVED US,
WE ALSO OUGHT TO LOVE ONE ANOTHER.  NO ONE HAS
EVER SEEN GOD; BUT IF WE LOVE ONE ANOTHER, GOD
LIVES IN US AND HIS LOVE IS MADE COMPLETE IN US.
( 1 JOHN 4:11-12 )

So Friend, LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL
YOUR HEART AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL AND WITH ALL
YOUR MIND AND WITH ALL YOUR STRENGTH.
( MARK 12:30 ) 
After all HE showers us with more love than
that every day.

Therefore; I PRAY THAT YOU, BEING ROOTED AND
ESTABLISHED IN LOVE, MAY HAVE THE POWER,
TOGETHER WITH ALL THE SAINTS, TO GRASP HOW
WIDE AND LONG AND HIGH AND DEEP IS THE LOVE OF
CHRIST, AND TO KNOW THIS LOVE THAT SURPASSES
KNOWLEDGE–THAT YOU MAY BE FILLED TO THE
MEASURE OF ALL FULLNESS OF GOD!
( EPHESIANS 3:17-19 ) 

All My Love & Prayers,
your servant Allen
