Five Minute Friday: The MOST Loved

I'm a little late this week with my 5 Minute Friday, but that's okay, right? Especially with the beautiful prompt from Lisa-Jo at The Gypsy Mama this week....

I feel loved when.....


GO.

Sometimes it's just a touch or a glance.

Sometimes it's, "I'll rub your back for you."

Sometimes it's a text, a phone call, a inbox message, a heartfelt comment on my blog.

Love holds many facets and dynamics for me.

But, I feel the most loved when I am accepted, wholly & completely, wheat & chaff, prickles & hugs.

I feel most loved when I am seen and spoken to and embraced through the eyes of love.

I feel most loved when I am understood, not agreed with patronizingly or argued with unwaveringly.

I feel most loved when my heart is prioritized by another human being.

And yet....

I feel THE MOST loved when I remember HOW much HE loves me....


How His mercy is new each morning

How my life basks in the radiance of His grace

How He dances and rejoices over me

There....

I can rest in His love....His arms.....His heart....

the shelter of His wings.

STOP.

What is Five Minute Friday, you may ask? It is those beautiful moments in time where we take 5....just 5....minutes to share some thoughts, unedited, unsifted, uncalculated....allowing our hearts to be REAL and our minds to just chill.

Join me??

Come on.....it only takes 5 minutes! *wink, wink*

Visiting via 5Min Fridays. Yes, I love this cross photo. It reminds me of a cross that I used to hike to on a ranch that our church owned in San Diego. Where we bare it all, at the cross, and he still chooses to tell us we are good. Beautiful. HAve a great weekend!
