I can’t seem to keep up with the time that I have and I’m not sure at all of where it goes. As I sit here I’m wondering how it could be possible that my grandson will soon turn 2? How could it possibly be that my husband and I have been together for 10 years and married for 9. Is my son really 27? I can’t slow it down and I don’t bother to try to. I do try to be happy with my efforts each day to make at least one person laugh. It’s one of my goals to compliment at least one person every day. It’s my normal. I’ve always been that way. I enjoy making people happy, helping them be successful and contributing to their well being. Given the swift passage of time, I thought I’d write a letter to anyone who has or will interact with me in any capacity.
Today is the day that I wanted to tell you that you are loved. There is no way you can destroy this love. There is no thought, action or word that can destroy this love. It’s free to me, to you, to anyone who wants it. Do you want to have it? Do you want to know it? I’ll tell you what to do. Where ever you are, I want you to stop thinking about the next task you must complete. Stop the thoughts of how angry you are at that person who just offended you. Stop thinking about the mistakes you just made or the ones you can’t let go of. Set all of that aside. In your heart or out loud, say, Lord, I’m here and I want to know you. Say, “Lord, I’m an imperfect person, just like everyone else. I do things that You wouldn’t like based on what is in Your book. I’m sorry about that. Please, may I have the love that Bonnie says You have for me? “
Here is the thing. This won’t solve all of your problems. It won’t make the events of your life easier. He will, however, stay with you through all of the events in your life. He will be with you through the good, the bad and the mundane. He will love you in a way that you’ve never known. Undefiled, pure, righteous and true love is what God has for you. He will give you His strength. He will give you His courage. He will show you what matters and what doesn’t. You might even be surprised to find out that some things you worry about don’t matter at all.
Maybe you’ve already done all of that and you know what I’m talking about. I thank God for you. If you are going through difficulties right now, Lord, please help him or her. Jesus, please draw near to this friend of mine and pour out a blessing on them that would be precious to them. Please make it something personal that only you and they know about. Please show them the depth of the knowledge you have of them so they will know exactly how deeply You love them.
That’s what I want you to know today and always.
