Lavish Love

As Valentine's Day approached, I rolled my eyes and did a sigh.  I seriously can NOT stand Valentine's Day.  I resist it until it hits me on the calendar and suddenly I find myself rushing to the closest Logo to pick up some quick treats so my kiddos have something to give their friends at school.  That is exactly how it goes every.single.year.

This year, however, I read a verse in the Bible that was in a different translation the day before Valentine's Day.

Deuteronomy 5:10(NLT)

"But I lavish unfailing love for a thousand generations on those
who love me and obey my commands."

I have camped out on those words "lavish unfailing love" and their magnitude.  He does LAVISH His love on us in so many ways. 
expended, bestowed, or occurring in profusion

using or giving in great amounts; prodigal
verb (used with object)
to expend or give in great amounts or without limit:

Do you see that He does that?  Do you watch for it?

Recently I saw it in a way that no one else would see.  I'd like to share it with you.

During our house-hunting, I had seen these amazing blinds that are built between the window panels of a door.  I don't know what they are called, but I know they work with my hard-wiring.  They won't get dirty and dusty and they won't clank around when a door slams.  I simply loved them.  I wanted a house that already had these smart blinds.

After being in our home for about a week, I realized that the ONLY possible door and place for these "smart blinds" to exist was our side garage door to the back yard.  You guessed it....that door has "My" blinds.  I just felt loved in great amounts even though it was small and quite possibly not even noticed by anyone else.  But, I want to proclaim it so that He gets the glory for lavishing His love on me.  Look for the big and small ways that He lavishes His love on you and tell the stories about it!

I know.  I know.  We said LAST summer that the Meyer's are moving to Colorado.  When in reality, the Meyer's left Oklahoma last summer and we are FINALLY moving tomorrow!  What a journey this has been!

We are...WOW....I have lots of words for what we are.  We are:
