Jesus loves me, this I know…

Sometime the tiniest gestures are what make me feel especially loved by my husband. Perhaps it’s a little love note left on the bathroom mirror, or him coming home with a piece of my favorite lemon pie or the cactus-lime juice that I so enjoy, or his chivalry when he offers to lift or carry something for me even though I could do it myself. Those little moments display his love, attentive care, and desires to bless me, and I feel so loved!

The other day I had a silly little moment that made me feel loved by God in that same sort of way. I found not just one, but two varieties of coffee yogurt at our local grocery store! It felt as if God was leaving me a little metaphorical love note since coffee yogurt has been one of my favorite breakfast foods since childhood and is something that I never expected to find here in Russia. Who in America even likes coffee yogurt other than me?!  I texted my husband a note saying, “Jesus loves me! I just found two kinds of coffee yogurt here at the store!” and as silly as it sounds, I really felt in that moment that Jesus was showing me the depth of his intimate care, even down to the tiniest detail of sending my favorite breakfast food all the way here to Russia.

“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.” James 1:17… Certainly this verse relates to deeper things than coffee yogurt at a grocery store in Russia, but those tiny things often speak so loudly of the ultimate gift of His love perfect love for us

In what ways has God recently shown you His attentive and intimate love for you personally?

    That reminds me of the time I found Washington apples at the local fruit stand in Venezuela. It was such a hug from God!
    Recently…well, my church spoiled me with a great baby shower the other night and along with all the gifts was exactly enough cash to buy the stroller I had my eye on! Super fun!
    His goodness is everywhere!

    We got a care package from thoughtful friends at home with all gourmet sweats and spices from our hometown, usually fancy stuff we won’t even buy when home (like Trader Joe style goodies). Taste and See that the Lord is good.

    I love parrots. We had to give up our pet bird when my husband went to grad school in 2004. In August we got new neighbors. They have a parrot, a sweet one. I haven’t met one parrot owner in the last seven years until now. My neighbors had a baby in February and decided they didn’t want the parrot…guess who they gave him to? I knew a parrot would never be in the budget and used to pray for a free one sometimes….and now Buster is a treasured family member.
