The waves lap at the bottle holding a tiny message of love. It rolls along the shore until the delicate hand of the young maiden pulls it from the ocean blue.
Nothing more romantic than a love letter in a bottle.
Perhaps a tale of a broken heart scribbled on the tattered page. A joyful hopeful heart desiring to find the one true love.
Sigh…. I’m a sucker for love.
Dear Friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. 1 John 4:11
God loves me. Loves you. Loves us, both. He loved us before we were even created in our mother’s womb. His perfect love isn’t meant for us to selfishly hoard. It is to be shared.
God freely loves us. Unconditionally. Never ending. Something I sometimes take advantage of or take it for granted…… I’m a selfish being. Maybe forgetful. Probably. Both.
It is to be shared.
To loved ones.
Shared. Love. Freely given.
God’s words, “Embrace. Give. Love. Serve,” echoes deeply within.
Love notes scribbled on pretty paper.
Placed in a jar.
Made ready to share.
Some are scriptures. Others are simple gestures.
Giving love, freely, unconditionally, like Christ.
Give God’s love to someone else.
Embrace, Regina. Give. Love. Serve. Give your love away, one heartbeat at a time.
How To Make Your Love Notes Jar
1. Find a jar. I had this one tucked back in one of my kitchen cabinets. I used scrapbook sticker letters. [As you might see in one of the close up shots... the "O" was torn.... Oh well, it adds character.]
2. Scraps of paper are used to make the slips for the love notes. I used some pretty scrapbook paper I had around here. I wrote scripture addresses on the slips. [I googled, "God's promises of Love", and just copied them down.] I also wrote little love orders, like: send a friend a note, tell 3 people “God loves you,” Smile at 5 strangers today, write “God loves you” on Facebook….. things like that.
3. Fold the scraps and put them in the jar. Take one out each day and do what it says….. Give love.
