When our kids were growing up we used to listen to a tape of Bible verses that were put to music. I am not so sure any of them remember those special tunes, but they have been firmly planted in my memory! One of my favorites was put to country music..."Let us love one another.....let us love one another....let us love one another....For love is of God.....love is of God."
Lately, due to several reasons, I have felt myself in a desert place with little to write about. Throughout this time of reflection and struggle, I have not lost sight of God's love for me. His amazing, unconditional love for all His children. I have been making the effort during my devotional time to visualize myself going into a garden that is filled with flowers, happy children and adults, and Jesus. I see Him sitting on a bench and in my mind I walk over and sit at his feet, putting my head in his lap. I tell Him I love Him and He tells me He loves me. I often ask Him to teach me something I have yet to learn. Remembering how much God loves me is helping me to feel a deeper love for others and for myself. For love is of God!
Monday is Valentine's Day and people focus on letting others know how much they love them. It is a special day set aside for love, but with Jesus, His love for us is new and special every day. Every day is Valentine's Day! We are blessed.
