Showers of Love~Part 3

SUNDAY MEMORIES

JUDY

I’ve told you about the SHOWERS OF LOVE that my husband gives me – especially following my total knee replacement surgery and my cancer episode.

I’ve told you about our oldest daughter’s SHOWERS OF LOVE in her coming to help out following my knee surgery.

I see love in my life every single day – and I can’t even begin to say how grateful I am that God has blessed me so much with family and friends who aren’t afraid to show their love. It showed up with those who came to visit, those who called, and those who brought food for us. I just hope and pray that I return that love to those around me who might need it.

As I was in physical therapy this week, the young man who is my therapist told me that he’d had an interesting weekend – he got engaged! Congrats all around!! As he was working on my knee, I informed him that my husband and I have been married for 54 years. His question was, “what kind of advice do you have for someone just starting out?”

I only had to think for just a moment before giving my response: “Well, I don’t know where you are spiritually (he began nodding his head at this), but….put Christ in the middle.”

I can’t think of a better way to show love to either your marriage partner, or to those around you. Just put Christ in the middle of any relationship, and it all works the way it’s supposed to work. God certainly knew that when he created us.

Many, many years ago, I saw a cartoon in a magazine that touched me – and amused me. I cut it out, and here it is. Those “three little words” have a way of lifting us up, and letting us know that we are, indeed, loved. Of course, a hug would have gone a long way, as well, but to say those words out loud, to the one you love, makes all the difference in our attitude.

See what you think:

May God bless you richly in all your loving relationships

 Because your love is better than life [O Lord], my lips will glorify you.

Psalm 63:3

    that was an excellent post Judy, You told the young man the exact right thing. I will remember to remember it if I’m ever asked that question. Isn’t it amazing how you were saving all these photos, etc all these years and how useful they are now that you’re a writer? God Knew way back then that you would need them and put them where they could be found by you.

    How very poignant, Judy. And please forgive my lack of communication. I don’t know how I missed getting the message concerning your illness. That will teach me to start looking around instead of concentrating on self.
