Maybe it was my oversized man aviators.
Maybe it was the perfect weather.
Maybe it was my Walmart Keds or the pink tennis skirt I finally fit into without feeling like a sausage.
Today was on of those killer mood days. Nothing made me feel smiley, and I was just begging myself to abide in the Lord. For some reason there was no abiding to be had. But, when my husband suggested a nice game of after work tennis before our Valentine’s dinner, something decided it would be a good idea. No one knows this about me but… tennis is usually a bad idea for me. I consider myself to be a good sport, prone to healthy competition and even sometimes apathy when it comes to games and sports. But not tennis. When I do bad (I’ve played like 5 times, of course I’m bad) I just want to throw my racket on the ground and scream at myself for not being able to hit a little green ball over the net.
But today was a new day. Whatever it was (Holy Spirit, thank you) worked for me. I liked it. I played with a happy heart. It even took me about of my no smiley day funk. No urges to throw things, no reason to be upset at myself. Praise the Lord! I needed that just in time for some fondu.
Anyway, all this talk about love makes me thankful for the One who IS love. All by himself. This is one of my favorite love songs to my Jesus. We sang it at my wedding. I hum it often throughout my days.
Here is love, vast as the ocean,
Lovingkindness as the flood,
When the Prince of Life, our Ransom,
Shed for us His precious blood.
Who His love will not remember?
Who can cease to sing His praise?
He can never be forgotten,
Throughout Heav’n’s eternal days.
