On Valentine's Day, let us join together to see how the Father is lavishing His love on us. It may be in the beauty of a flower just blooming. It may be in the chubby cheek smile of a little baby. It may be in the way my husband has the coffee brewing as I am waking up. It may be in an unexpected word of encouragement from a friend.
God's love shows up in the most peculiar, unexpected places. It's as if he is always throwing a love "surprise!" party. Sometimes we are too busy to notice. Or just plain blind. Or just so down that all we are doing is looking down. Look up and see His lavish love today!
And when you see all the love surprises being thrown your way, respond. Respond with love to Him. By worship. By showing love to one of His other children. By being a walking, shining example of what a life transformed looks like from encountering that kind of sweet sweet love.
