Love Note

Love never fails– 1 Corinthians 13:8

So, I’m not a morning person and I didn’t really see the card or boxes of candy at first. They were from my husband to me on Valentines day. Today to be exact. He was working the early morning shift at his work and had gotten up much earlier than me. I heard him get up and go out to our kitchen, but I, in this early morning hour, remained in a fog of consciousness and sleep. While he prepared for his day ahead.

But, I did hear the water running in the sink. He’s probably washing out the food dishes for our two cats before adding new food, I thought, and I drifted back to sleep.

When I finally woke and stumbled my way into the kitchen, the first thing I noticed was the clean sink- that is free from the dishes from the night before. So, that’s the noise I heard, he was washing the dishes for me. Nice! And then I noticed the card on the table at the spot where I usually sit and eat my breakfast.

For me it was the perfect message of love on Valentines’ Day. It was love doing something. Not just nice words, but really speaking my love language- at least one of them.

It also made me reflect upon God’s love for us. God’s word says He loves us. But, would that have really mattered much, without Jesus actually doing love? That is, healing and caring for people during His earthly ministry and then finally the ultimate action of love, dying for us? Giving Himself for us. Not just telling us with His words, but showing us what love looks like. What His love looks like.

Love is not just a feeling or a bunch of words, but Love is action. Love does. Love is not just words; its a demonstration of what those words mean. Love like that never fails.

I hope you enjoy Valentines’ Day this year and find someone to show God’s love to. Don’t just tell them; show them. God Bless You – Nancy
