Whatever is Lovely

Heart

Philippians48

 

While brainstorming a new tagline for Love You Muches, I started thinking about the word lovely. Lovely is a word I toss around a lot. It’s one of my favorite words. It means:

  • attractive or pleasing, especially in a graceful way
  • very good or likable
  • very pleasing

Philippians 4:8 came to mind, and the phrase “whatever is lovely” in that verse inspired my tagline. Now, I’m not trying to say that the stationery, quilts, planners, and other topics I write about on Love You Muches are things you should spiritually “think on”, but I like the reminder this tagline gives me. The Greek word for lovely in this verse means acceptable or pleasing. I believe Philippians 4:8 instructs us on where our focus should be in life. Instead of worldly, material things, we need to think about spiritual things that are pleasing to God.

There’s more than enough darkness, evil, and negativity in the world. It’s so easy to get caught up in it all. I don’t want this blog to be the kind place that does not fit in with the principle of Philippians 4:8. Sure, I will write about the material things I find lovely, but I don’t want to ever lose my number one focus. This is why I feel so strongly about having the “heart” category of posts. There’s a balance that I want to achieve here.

My prayer is that Love You Muches will be a place to share whatever is lovely – both the material things and more spiritual matters of faith.
