the smallest things fill my heart with gladness


What I'm about to write might sound crazy to a few of you, of course at first, I thought I might be crazy too, that is until today.

About a few weeks ago I just began to feel so alone and sad and I found myself crying out to God, tears rolling down my cheeks, my heart feeling empty and I told Him how alone and sad I felt. That I knew He loved me, but if He could just give me signs, that I needed something tangible. I don't know if any of you have felt this way, that you just desperately needed to feel that love, but I was. Since that day, I have found hearts everywhere. I found one in my salad, on top of the rice vinegar bottle (a little stain had formed into the shape of a heart), walking towards our place I found a dried up leaf in the perfect shape of a heart and I took it home with me. Sure these are all small things, but it is the smallest things that fill my heart with gladness. That small heart shaped item, made me smile, I felt as though I was being romanced by a God who loves me sooo much, he surprises me with the smallest things to let me know I am loved, and that He is there. At first I thought, maybe it's just coincidence, still holding on to the hope that it was from God, but I can't doubt anymore. There's been too many since my prayers, so many even Alex has mentioned I've been finding a lot of heart things lately and all I could do is smile and say, yes, because God loves me.

Today Alex brought me the Asian chicken from Wendys, and there in the corner underneath all the other little chicken pieces, was a heart shaped chicken!

No matter what you're going through or how you feel, God is there, waiting for you to come to Him.
Waiting for you to accept how much He loves you, waiting to show you, even in the smallest details!

Just want to share some adorable heart pictures with you since we're on the topic :D

  8. Cute stuff! AND all I did was use light green marking tape to put up my lights. It kind of doesn't work all that well, though, so I might have to think of something different next year.

  9. I love the way God sends us little signs of love to keep us encouraged.

  10. love this, and you are so right, sometimes it just takes us to notice those things!

    today james and i went shopping with my new giftcards...and i couldnt help but get something for you when i saw it, so you have a package coming your way! i might not get it out tomorrow, i got sick today, but really soon!

    i am off to get some much needed rest!

  11. God is awesome! and its great to see other people speak about it! My friend sees hearts everywhere too and she takes a picturewhen she sees one in a strange way and collects them.
    You are never alone! And its good to write about it. We are female and some females pretend everything is perfect all the time. Thanks for being honest and I cry sometimes to and dont know why. I often cry for others too.

  12. Inspiring post. :) God is good. Whenever I feel kinda "lost"... I talk to him too and meditate on this... "The will of God will never take you to where the grace of God will not protect you"... take care. BTW, cute pics.

    Love & Aloha, S
