Chapter 7, Page 1, Book 15

On a day like today. We passed the time away. Writing love letters in the sand...

July 1 - Love letters in the sand

Someone has said that the Bible is God’s love letter to us. But perhaps on some days, like me, you just don’t feel like opening it.  It is said of some people that the more you know them the less you admire them; but the reverse is true of God. Familiarity with the Word of God, or rather the God of the Word, breeds affection, and affection seeks yet greater familiarity.

Letters are something we look forward to receiving. When it is from a loved one far away, we just can't wait for it to arrive.  They are  sprinkled with terms of endearment, fond memories, and anticipated joy.They send encouragement to keep safe, to enjoy friends and activities.

Letters connect us. Now we have social networking to connect us but way back when letters are what bound people together. They still bind people together for those who choose to write them. 

Remember: the One who loves you the most has a message for you.

I am glad that not all my love letters were in the sand. Also glad the ones I get are permanent.
I do agree with the statement, at times the more youlearn of a person the less impressed you are, EXCEPT our LORD.

I liked that smile in the sand and the message behind it! So true about the Bible being God's love letter to us! No matter how many times I read it, I do get more wisdom from it :) Even getting an email letter from a friend or a family member can be a cheery thing :)



Letters do indeed connect us. Love to write in the sand. Such sweet messages.
