My Love Letter

For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.  Matthew 6:21 NIV

One afternoon, I read a book about a devoted husband’s love letters to his wife.

I reflected on what a treasure true love is. I can rest here and compose my own love letter. Someone described me as a single, stand-alone woman, but I can still compose my own love letter because I know the meaning of true love. My love letter is to God.

True love is a treasure—the thing we all search for in life. For me, this means expressing my thanks to God for simple things that do not cost anything.

The real treasures we can enjoy involve rising with the dawn and watching a beautiful sunrise, listening to birdsong in a tree as we watch the beautiful flowers in a garden, or enjoying family and friends.

Our bodies are also treasures in themselves because God has created them for love. Although they wind down in the golden years, we can enjoy these years by thanking God for the real treasures in life. We can devote more time to prayer and appreciate God’s great gifts to everyone. Believing in Jesus’ gift to us all, we can find our real treasure in loving God.

What treasures can you list in your love letter to God?
