What a happy and holy fashion it is that those who love one another should rest on the same pillow.
~ Nathaniel Hawthorne
Open your eyes and there it is! By taking a long and thoughtful look at what God has created, people have always been able to see what their eyes as such can’t see: eternal power, for instance, and the mystery of his divine being. So nobody has a good excuse.
~ Romans 1:20
It started when we were dating. I would walk in the house and the phone would be ringing. He knew. No cell phone, no call before I left wherever I was, nothing. My schedule irregular? Didn’t matter. He knew. If we were parted and I was feeling lonely, the phone would ring.
It was not, as one might suppose, a control thing. It was a pleasant reminder that we were connected. And through whom. It still happens, thirty two years later, he phones in a hug, he texts at just the right moment. He says I do it too. And then tells me he was thinking of me.
God knew. God still knows. Where I am, how I am hurting, my smallest joy, my biggest hope.
Who is your someone? That person who finds you in a crowd, who knows your winces, your surprise, your joys? God is letting you know that as always, God knows.
He is With Us
Father, thank you for the feather, the cardinal, the airplane passing over, thank you for the music that gets caught between my throat and tear ducts. I know you love me, and you show it every day. Help me to relax in that. In Jesus’ name. Amen
Because of Him,
