So, I asked my husband last Saturday what outfit I should wear to church the next day. In a "matter of fact" way he responded that he couldn't think of one. I said "Come on, when you think of your favorite outfit on me, what pops into your head?" His answer was still "I can't think of one", then he added "I can't even remember what you wore last Sunday." The funny thing is, he can remember dresses or outfits that he loved while we were dating, (see picture below) he just can't remember last Sunday's outfit. 😂 If it wasn't for the slight smirk on his face, I probably would've gotten upset about this. Instead, I burst out laughing. If I'm going to be completely honest ladies, I didn't remember what he was wearing the week before either.
We remember so much when we first fall in love. We save every love note and memory and can't get enough of each other, but then the years go by and you don't notice as much. You forget what you were wearing yesterday, let alone your spouses outfit from a week ago. God remembers and loves every beautiful thing about us though. Every detail. Every accomplishment. Every good hair day and bad hair day. In fact, He knows the very number of hairs on our heads. Sadly, we can become a lot like an old married couple when it comes to our love for God though. When we first realize how amazing God's love for us is and we accept the gift of His Son, we are so excited that we want to tell everyone. We remember every detail, we are in awe of His love, His words. His peace. His comfort. His presence. But then, time passes and pretty soon that love fades and we aren't so excited. We stop telling others. We might even stop reading His love letter to us and only find ourselves talking to Him when we're in trouble. All the while He is sitting right next to us, patiently waiting for that love to return to how it was in the beginning. He has never moved from our side. His love is constant and unchanging.
Just like reading and reminiscing over old love letters from your dating years can rekindle that "first love" feeling~ talking to God throughout your day, getting into the Bible, Gods love letter written just for you, will~ without fail~ rekindle that love you might have lost. You will remember. And your awesome Heavenly Father will hug you and say "I never forgot".
