22 Apr We Were Created For Love
Now that the sun has decided to show up in the Northwest, I have been walking all week. No earbuds, no music, no phone – just the sound and smells of God’s creation. I kept hearing the words “We were created for love” in my spirit. I glanced at the sky, felt the slight breeze on my face and breathed in sweet aromas of spring flowers. I heard the glorious sounds of an owl, robins, squirrels, and eaglets. That’s right. We have a large eagle nest in our neighborhood. Two days ago I got a glimpse of two eagles soaring high in the clouds. Yesterday I saw one soar over the lake. Today, one flew right over me into a tree! It was so majestic and beautiful.
I am so amazed by God’s handiwork. His love is the passion behind everything He created. Then, now, and in the future. It was always His intention to have divine relationships. We need Him and we need each other. Animals need food, plants need water, flowers need sun – it’s all based on relationship.
Just as the picture depicts, I need you and you need me – we need each other. I’m grateful for friendships in my life. I am so glad that the Lord never neglects us and loves us unconditionally! There is always help available to us.
“Love, like music, is a melody that lingers in the heart long after the words have been sung. Love is what helps us to feel for each other, to put ourselves into our neighbor’s places. It helps us to see with their eyes, hear with their ears, and feel with their hearts. Better yet, it teaches us to view others the way God sees them. No matter what difficulties we may face, love is the universal answer.” author unknown
Remember, we were created for love!

Amen!! I went for a walk today in the wilderness, marveled at the beauty of creation and thoroughly enjoyed the sunshine and each person who passed the other way, saying “hello”. His creation grace along with His love is evident everywhere.

I’m grateful for your friendship in my life! We really do need each other. The squirrels in the picture are a wonderful example of our need for relationship. They make me smile. 🙂
