My Greatest Love Letter

© 2010, Chantelle Henderson

Song of Solomon 6:3
“I am my beloved's, and my beloved is mine….”

I sit.

I wait.

I wonder.

As I sit, I read your love letter to me.  Your Word.  My Daily Bread.

As I wait, I listen for your gentle voice to guide me along paths of righteousness.

As I wonder, I am in great expectation of what your plans are for my life; the plans that will bring glory, and honor, and praise to you.

I smile.

I cry.

I laugh.

I smile at the thought that I am the apple of your eye.

I cry because I am overwhelmed by your everlasting affection and relentless love for me.

I laugh because life can be hilarious at times.  It’s obvious that you have a sense of humor.  After all, you created me.

I lean.

I rest.

I love.

I lean into your chest to hear your heart beating with mine.

I rest in knowing that you have and always will work all things together for my good.

I love…… I love you.
