Simple words , yet so powerful!
How many times during the course of a day do we hear the phrase, "I love you." Whether it is from a child, who lovingly puts their arms around us and says "I love you", a spouse who looks into our eyes and whispers in our ear "I love you", Or hearing the voice of another loved one at the end of a phone conversation say, "I love you". Hearing the phrase "I love you" is always as fresh as if I am hearing it for the very first time.
Yesterday while I was preparing strawberries for freezing, I had just heard the words, "I Love you", from dh as he came by for some refreshments. After he left and as I was relishing in his words, I asked myself this question, "have I told the Lord that I loved HIM today?" I didn't wait for an answer, I stopped what I was doing, and said "Lord, I LOVE YOU".
Just as I never tire of hearing the phrase, "I love you", it is always fresh and anew to me, I am wondering , How much more does God love hearing me say to Him, "I love you".
Every time I hear the phrase, "I love you", a smile comes forth, God is love, and He exudes love in all ways. I would love to see His Smile, when I tell Him "I love you"!!
