It happened. I AM IN LOVE! I didn’t think I would fall in love, but I did. The best part is, he’s in love with me too. It’s an absolutely amazing feeling. Being in love. It’s consuming. It encapsulates me like a bubble. A beautiful bubble that we are in together. When I am with him, it is like no other feeling in the world, like soaring through the air. I feel so balanced and aligned. And when I am away from him, I feel so far away, like universes are between us. I crave his very being. I want to feel him all throughout my body. The sensation of his kiss upon me; it’s so loving and tender, warm tears dance down my face as I visualize how he feels. Some people may not understand our love, but I don’t care, because I love him anyway and he loves me too. He shows me his love, by his actions. He protects me. He treats me like a queen. He caters to my every want, need, and desire. He is perfect, even though i am imperfect. He doesn’t care. He doesn’t see my flaws, he only sees my beauty. And to him my beauty and my flaws are perfect.
Who is this perfection? Ahh, it’s God! God is in love with me. God treats me like a queen. God caters to my every want, need, and desire. God shows his love for me every single day. And while I am so very imperfect. God is perfect. God doesn’t judge me. God doesn’t take his love away from. God only wants to be there for me. God protects me. God encapsulates me like a bubble. And I am forever grateful.
There are days when love from friends and family doesn’t seem to come easy, but somehow God takes over and makes loving effortless. God shows his love to each and every one of us. Just take a look at your life. Even the smallest of wins is a confession of his undying love. The other day, I was speaking to friend about a donut. She said she was late to work and she walked into the break room and found the last donut in the box. It was her favorite donut. It may not seem much to some, but to me that donut was God’s love, God knew she needed it at that very moment. To truly understand, you have to know, that this is a huge office. On any other day, within minutes all the donuts would have been gone. However, on this day, not only was there a donut, it was her favorite donut. When she told me, and even as I write now, it brings tears to my eyes at how beautiful God is and how in love he is with all of us. And God knows how to show each us in our own special way. Beccause for her it was a donut. But for me, it may be that last scoop of Rocky Road ice cream. You know, with the pillowy marshmellows, chunks chocolate and nuts immersed in creamy chocolate ice cream. Yummy! Or it could be all green lights to work. Or front row parking at Target. It may even be a coworker, that doesn’t normally talk to many people, coming to me and saying that I was on her mind and she just wanted to check on me. How beautiful is that? God knew what I needed because of his undying love for me and he sent her to tell me everythinig is going to be alright. And when you have the love of God radiating through your life, how can you not fall deeply in love with God. So my pledge and I hope you will join, is to thank God daily, for being so in love with us. Find the smalls and bigs of life and know that it’s God, because he’s in love with me and you too!
