Unveiling God's Love in the Daily Stuff of Life

I'm addicted to Chocolove's Sea Salt & Almond Chocolate Bar *sigh*.  They are delightful - I spread a whole bar over one or two weeks.  I just recently noticed these little notes of love on the inside of the wrapper.  Today's touched me so beautifully, and spoke to me of the constant presence of God's love.  Although written from a romantic perspective, read it as if God is saying this to you - He is.

from Inspiration to Love

Come when the nights are bright with stars
Or when the moon is mellow;
Come when the sun his golden bars
          Drops on the hay-field yellow.
Come in the twilight soft and gray,
Come in the night or come in the day,
Come, O Love, when'er you may,
          And you are welcome, welcome...

...Come when my heart is full of grief
          Or when my heart is merry;
Come with the falling of the leaf
          Or with the redd'ning cherry.
Come when the year's first blossom blows
Come when the summer gleams and glows.
Come with the winter's drifting snows.
           And you are welcome, welcome.

Paul Laurence Dunbar

Isn't this the truth that we long for to be true, and it is!  God just wants us to come, rest in His love.  Know that we were created by Him and delighted in by Him.  Sometimes it seems too good to be true, that the Creator of our world, of us and all around us actually wants to know us and smiles upon us with love, but how amazing that it is truth, for He has written it in His letter to us.
