The Power of Notes

Tonight, as I was reading C.J. Mahaney’s book Sex, Romance and the Glory of God, I couldn’t help but smile and dice onions during this part:

Quick little notes–for all kinds of purposes–can have real power too. In regard to notes, I want to become as thoughtful and forward-thinking as a husband I once read about:

When the new car was side-swiped on a trip to the supermarket, Mary stopped and tearfully fumbled in the glove compartment for the insurance papers. Attached to them she found an envelope with her name on it in her husband’s handwriting. “Dear Mary,” the note said, “when you need these papers, remember it’s you I love, not the car.”

And as amazing as this example is, it is but a DIM reflection of the unrelenting love of God. Wow.
