I drove my husband to the airport at 4AM. He’s an early riser, so I imagine that was not quite as difficult for him as it was for me. 7AM is more my style! Later that day, as I began to rise and shine, I started finding little love notes…everywhere! There was one on the coffee pot, one in the silverware drawer, another in the refrigerator, still another on my computer and I suspect there are more yet to be discovered. Sure, it’s a little over the top, but then that’s the gift of love…it always strives to be more than you imagined it could be.
I’m sharing this with you because I feel fairly certain that in His own way, and with His own hand, God does this all the time. He leaves little love notes everywhere, reminders that He is thinking of us and that He loves us more than we can imagine. He shows up when we least expect it, answers a prayer we whispered in haste, and goes a little over the top, trying to get His message to resonate with our hearts. He knows we’re busy. He knows we think that our independence and our intelligence, and our perseverance are the things that get us through the day. Yes, He gave us those things, but He goes beyond our abilities and capabilities. He inspires a friend to call just when we needed a warm voice. He reminds us of a Scripture, or blesses us with a song that brings us peace. He’s there…still sending you love notes!
