I guess I should start this one off by saying Happy Valentine’s Day! Although many singles find this day somewhat depressing, I have to admit, it’s been a pretty amazing day for me. God showed up big time this morning during my devotional – just to remind me that He is the ultimate valentine (and since you’re a huge fan of His, I know you won’t be jealous if I say that ; ).
I guess what struck me most was Psalm 139. That’s one of my favorite scripture passages. I almost committed it to memory last summer, but stopped a few verses short. I should pick that up again. Anyways, it reminded me that God knows every single little detail about me. The number of hairs on my head. The sort of mistakes I will make before I make them. Every word that I say. Every thought that I think. EVERYTHING! Yep, more than you, Sweet Pea. AND HE STILL LOVES ME. Crazy, huh? (Now is the time where you say- “No, He’s not crazy- how could someone not love you?” Bahahaha- just kidding. Sometimes I just crack myself up).
I’m just so pumped these past few days because what God spoke to me about in my devotional (here) a few weeks ago has come to pass. I have a new heart that is embracing God in a way I’ve never known before.
It’s neat to think (on this day that everybody is celebrating love) what you’re doing. Maybe you’re like me and kept it low key. A good lunch with friends. A walk through the art museum. Leftovers for dinner. And blogging/music jam session at night. I kinda doubt it though. You know that old saying, “Opposites attract.” I have a feeling that you’ll be much more outgoing and spontaneous than I am, which is good because then we would balance out.
I am the more serious and focused one and you’re the one that everyone loves- lol.
Well, I think I’ve rambled on enough now. Happy Valentine’s Day, love.
Praying for you and thinking of you until we meet,
