I almost missed the little slip of paper, which had obviously been torn out of a notebook. It was small enough to escape one’s notice easily.
There it sat on the floor. I picked it up and turned it around.
Immediately my heart became overwhelmed with this familiar feeling of love and longing. It was exactly what I had hoped it to be, a note from my niece, who had visited along with my sister over two years ago.
“I love you and miss you so much!”
For the past couple of years, these little notes of love had been hiding all over my house. I would find them in the most odd places, like in a stack of coffee filters, way down. She had hidden them all over, under, and in between things.
How precious when I find them and am reminded of our time together.
How this reminds of my Father’s notes for me, hidden everywhere, placed with loving care.
“Lord, help me to see where you leave me Your notes of Love
Each day as I walk, reveal Your heart of kindness to me
Give Light to my eyes, so I can see You
~In faces of people, who bare Your image
~In Your Word of Truth, the Bible
~In nature and that which Your hand has created
~In Jesus Christ, my Life and Light.”
