Dancing with my heart, my words, my song, and my love, before my God…

But let all who take refuge in you be glad; let them ever sing for joy. Spread your protection over them, that those who
LOVE YOUR NAME may rejoice in you. Psalms 5:11

I Love You, Nana

I stare before me, my Lord, a note upon my monitor that says, ‘I love you Nana’ and a drawing of a heart to represent this love from a portion of the center of my precious granddaughter’s feelings, her heart. 

She placed it on a door
and then decided that her choice of location
was extremely too far away from my eyes. 
She wanted it to be
at the utmost prominent place
where I had no choice
but to get this message she did not take lightly. 
For as a child,
they are quick to say or expose
those they do not like also;
so if you are loved by a child…
you are truly loved.  
And what brings them such delight
when sharing this message with you
is to see your response in return…
your love. 

This morning as I look at this note,
I am reminded
that Jesus has written me so many notes
and in that same hope of my response,
to favor His Gift of Love to me.   
Oh Jesus,
I do,
oh yes, I do! 
How many times
have You wrote upon my heart
and placed it so I would not get through
without stumbling into it. 
How many times have You placed it
on the very objects of my affections
so that You could
Shine Your Presence
and very Heart Beat of Love
where I could not possibly overlook it. 
How many times
have I simply walked my day
to find Your Fingerprints
upon my work and play. 
Oh Jesus, I Love You too. 
So much,
I love You too…!

His love notes are so overwhelming and almost unexpected at times! For instance, I was at church Sunday morning and I happened to glance over at this little girl who was probably about 3 years old just bouncing up and down at her mamma's side and WHAM I started to tear up as He overwhelmed me with memories of my own little girl at that age (didn't help that she looked so much like my Annie). So here I am in a crowd of hundreds just crying for what appears to be no reason. Well, His love notes show up in funny places!!
