When I was in college, I looked forward to getting care packages from my family. I think the idea of it felt even better than the real thing did when it arrived. They say it's the thought that counts and I tend to agree!
Yesterday, a care package arrived from my wife, with presents for me and my son and "the perfect card" that she has been excited for me to receive ever since she found it.
It started me thinking today about care packages, both physical and figurative (emails, PMs, pics, phone calls). So here's a Tuesday Two about care packages...
1) What have you received recently, literally or figuratively, that made you feel loved?
My sweetie's perfect card! Here's a quote from it...
"I know it's crazy for me to think you're never more than a heartbeat away when there are so many miles between us. But in the precious moments when we're together, it's like the stars are perfectly aligned and everything's right with the world. And those moments are so incredible, that once they've passed, I can't get them--or you--off my mind."
2) What have you done recently, literally or figuratively, to express love or caring for someone else?
I created a scrapbook for my wife and sent it to her. In addition to pictures of us, and our family, I included journaling which expressed how much I love her and how much she means to me.
Bonus question: what has happened recently between you and God recently that felt like a demonstration of God's love for you?
Through a series of circumstances, I was able to get more clear about what I think I am meant to do.
So that's our Tuesday Two, gay Christian bloggers (and friends)! Post a link in the comments if you play.
