Love doesn’t need a holiday such as Valentine’s Day or any other special day, Love shows up every single day.
*Love is having actual conversations with the clerk behind the counter or the grocery attendant packing up your bags.
*Love is slowing down to let someone over on the freeway
*Love is sending a text to a friend just saying “I’m thinking of you”
*Love is waving hello even if they don’t wave back
*Love is the random smiling at someone, who you never know that you might have just made their day
*Love is holding the door for the elderly woman with a walker
This is the kind of love that brings a smile to God’s Face. It isn’t complicated, it’s nothing fancy ...simple random acts of kindness. It doesn’t need an invitation or holiday. Love simply shows up, EVERY SINGLE DAY!
Sometimes in our darkest moments, in our brokenness, we see God’s love again and again. Everything has more meaning. The little things have grown smaller, the things that truly matter have grown larger, the sunsets have more color and rainbows have more wonder.
The here and now today, the loss of yesterday, any pain that comes tomorrow, is only temporary...nothing lasts forever. Remember in these unprecedented times:
He will give me strength to walk over the hills and through the valleys to a place of peace, knowing He is in control and right there with me every step of the way. His love gently lights the way ahead.
