You are Loved

I don't remember what the name of the jewelry store is or if they still do it. But, I remember the big, bright, shinny, glass bowl filled with round red buttons. The buttons just said "I am loved." That is quit a message. It is a message that we all need to hear. They are word that we all desire and long to be expressed towards us.

You are loved.

Even the toughest, the most macho, and the hardest of all humans needs to know that they are loved. We can try to put up tough exteriors but inside each of us is, if we will be honest, is a person- a voice asking to be loved.

You are loved.

What I am trying to convey today-- to you. Yes, you. Is that you are loved. If I had the big glass jar of buttons you would need to take one, pin it on and wear it around. You are loved.

There is someone who hears that voice and see through the exterior. God loves you with a love that will not let go. You are loved by God and by me.

You are loved.

Love today so that others can know that they are loved.

In Christ's love and mine,
Doug
