40 Reflections: 40 days of raw recollections during the Lenten Season
Last week, I called my dear friend and one of the best storytellers I know. She answered the phone forgoing mundane salutations and asked, “Do you know what love is?!” Scarcely pausing for an answer, she continued, “It is this tuna melt sandwich my husband just made me!” She went on to say she wasn’t sure if all the love came from gooey cheese involved or the simple fact that she didn’t have to make her own lunch. Either way, today’s love story for her is a delicious sandwich.
Recently, the New York Times purchased Wordle. If you have been living under a rock, Wordle is a word guessing game designed by Josh Wardle, a software engineer in Brooklyn. He developed this game for the sole purpose of letting his wordsmith partner know he loved her. Now thousands of people love Wordle.
I thought about the many times I arrived home and the laundry was washed, folded and put away, or the sink had been cleared of dishes and cleansed. This is love. How about the time the kids showed up with coffee for us and a note that said, “Happy first day of school” — definitely love.
Love is patient, love is kind. It is not jealous, (love) is not pompous, it is not inflated…1 Corinthians 13
Or when our dog greets us at the door with a hug welcoming us home…love again.
Show your love today, especially if it’s a cheezy, scrumptious tuna melt you make for someone.
So faith, hope, love remain, these three; but the greatest of these is love.Please pray for Ukrain
