When God sends you flowers

Do you ever wonder if God really loves you? Me too. I mean, head knowledge says yes, but my heart sometimes doesn't connect with the big picture. I struggle. I don't know why, but I do.
And so, God, in His way, has set about to show me how much He loves me. He's been speaking my language. My language is gifts. If I see something that I think a loved one will like, I buy it. I make it....I get it...I give it.
And so....God started to speak my language. It started with a great apartment. It continued with some great new furniture, winter tires, money for a trip.
(Now don't think I'm not grateful, I honestly didn't get the connection.)
Great things kept happening, and I would take a moment and express my thanks....but didn't get that He was speaking my language.
Til one day.........
as I sat on my great sofa, and He finally spoke, " Your love language is gifts......you keep getting stuff.....are you understanding yet?"
And it finally clicked.
And once again it rings true....you can't be pretty AND smart.
I got it. I finally got it.
Last week my treadmill died. I needed something to exercise on, and by the end of the week, I acquired an elliptical trainer for a price that I could afford.
And today He sent me flowers.
I know lots of you are wondering how...He spoke to one of His children.....they discussed, and she obeyed.
And the Lord Most High, the Creator of the Universe, the King of Kings....sent me, Me, flowers.

  1. :) Love this. It is so true. We are all used. We need to listen and obey because we are the vessels He uses to bless others. I'm so glad He's giving you gifts. What a great way to say 'I love you'
