We have three huge crape myrtle trees near our front door, and right now, they are in full bloom. Every time I’m near them, I am met with an amazing aroma that wafts through the air. That’s not all! As the wind blows and the rain falls, they give up their bloom, and the white petals litter the sidewalk, porch, and entryway. It looks as though a flower girl has sprinkled her flowers before the bride makes her way to the altar to meet the groom. This morning, I notice that some of them had made their way into my house, either by the wind or by my little dogs bringing them in on their feet. It fills my heart with tears of joy to know that Jesus is near and that he has left this subtle hint to confirm his love. We don’t need anything but Jesus and his creation to remind us of how precious we are to him. Take a look around today and notice some of the ways he shows his love; it’s there; you only need to open the eyes of your heart to see them.
having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, Ephesians 1:18
