We are like many families who pack lunches and tuck little love notes in them so a simple meal can add a boost of appreciation in the midst of a full school day. The other night our youngest, Mari, was packing her lunch and asked for someone to please write her a love note. All busy with our evening activities, her dad and I didn’t hear her simple request! Rather than pout, feel sorry for herself or even throw a pity party…she took matters into her own hands and wrote herself a straight to the point love note and tucked it in her lunch box!
I’m not a big fan of the ‘self-love’ movement that’s swept our culture in recent decades but, I am in favor of a healthy heart that trusts love…especially God’s. Mari is secure in her love…she knows how loved she is. Her note is inspiring to me…I think I would have the tendency to pout and be so distracted by the fact that no one heard my request for a note that I would miss love right around me!
How about you? Do you know you are loved? Look around you and look up!
