A Weightless, Warm Blanket

When I awoke this morning to such a chill in the air, it reminded me of all the years of waking up in Michigan to cold air such as this, and the remedy that I used to have on hand.

There was a fluffy wool shawl, red and white plaid in design, that was woven of soft and fuzzy threads, and the result was a wrap that was light but oh, so warm, that I'd wrap around me in the morning chill.

When the days were so cold, I'd wear it from morning till night, and it kept me so snug in its embrace, that it made even the cold ugly weather somehow a brighter more cheerful place.

That shawl reminds me of the love that we share, like a weightless, warm blanket that we share - and when the days grow chill, it is right there to be wrapped around my shoulders with care.

It is weightless because love does not weigh us down, it instead frees us to soar and fly free, it is always with us, but never dragging us down, it encourages us to be all we can be.

It is warm because love is, and it reflects what is in our hearts, for it captures the warmth that overflows, and keeps the chill away, no matter what it is, that threatens to try and ruin our day.

It is so wide and long that it covers us head to toe, and we are completely surrounded by its gentle touch, and reminds us with every movement that we make, of the love we've been given, the very definition of 'much'

Every day I awake to the warmth that is wrapped around me, and I thank my Father above, for sending me the one who created this cherished blanket for me, the one who gives his heart to me with his love.

And I take each hour in my day to create the same loving cover for him, for this love that we have shines brighter each day, and I know it will never grown dim; and I wrap you up with all the love in my heart, to keep you warm and snug within.
