Something To Never Forget
God is fond of you...
If he had a wallet, your photo would be in it.
If he had a refrigerator, your picture would be on it.
He sends you flowers
every spring
and a sunrise
every morning.
Whenever you want to talk, he'll listen.
He can live anywhere in the universe and he chose your heart.
Face it, friend. He's crazy about you.
By the way, it may be difficult for you to believe that God knows your name...
but he does.
Written on his hand. Spoken by his mouth. Whispered by his lips.
Your name.
"I have written your name on my hand." Isaiah 49:6
Our hearts are not large enough to contain the blessings that God wants to give.
So try this.
The next time a sunrise steals your breath...
or a meadow of flowers
leaves you speechless...
remain that way.
Say nothing and listen
as heaven whispers,
"Do you like it?
I did it just for you."

Was he obliged to make the birds sing?
And the funny way
that a chickens scurry...
or the majesty of thunder when it rings?
Why give a flower fragrance?
Why give food its taste?
Could it be that he loves to see
that look upon your face?
So promise me
you'll never forget...
that you aren't
an accident
or an incident...
you are a gift
to the world,
a divine work of art,
signed by God.

Quoted from Max Lucado, "God Thinks You're Wonderful" (2003)
