my texts are peppered with x and o’s.
book-ended often with i love you.
too many goodbyes in this life to leave it unsaid.
too many no chances left to leave it to chance.
when words are handed back and forth between the ones god puts me on path to walk with for season or lifetime, it is what i want to start with. even more—-leave behind. love that’s bookmarked for the easy finding.
it is what we carry with us about each other. the chorus. the most repeated in our every day. every speaking.
it matters most.
the chorus tethered to your humming heart is that you are loved.
words memorized before realizing. words that come to mind easily in the often hearing.
that his delight in you gives birth to song…
the chorus his unfailing love.
we love, because he first loved us.
1 john 4:19 (NASB)
