21909694_sWe are in a series called What is Love Anyway?

It is always amazing when I walk into a small business here in Portland, Oregon and recognize, they are a part of the body of Christ.

This Christmas as you go to and fro hunting for the best deals out there, don’t forget to bless those brothers and sisters in Christ, whether they own the local coffee shop, a toy store or the antique shop around the corner!

Blessings and Complete Joy,
