There was a letter lying there, I hadn't seen it before, a single sheet, folded over, right at my feet on the floor.
I bent down to pick it up, oh, it had the sweetest smell, and the paper felt so good in my hand, I knew it had good things to tell.
I slowly unfolded it and saw just three words written there, in indelible ink, they fairly glowed, they had been put there with such care.
My eyes filled with tears at the joy I felt, I had to say those words out loud, and all my worries just fell away, and I was sitting on a cloud.
And what were those words that I read, that changed me so that day?
Jesus had put that note in my path, and "I LOVE YOU" was what it had to say.
That was the day I first accepted Jesus, the letter I made up, but the feeling is so real, there is just one other makes me feel like that, sitting on a cloud, hearing heavenly bells peal.
And that first happened the day I met you, for God meant us two to become one, and my heart filled with love when I saw you there, and into your arms I did run.
Now every day I have a new letter, waiting each morning when I wake, for your gift of love is a new gift each time, to carry with me as that day's path I take.
All the day long I try to write a letter back in words so true, that every little thing I can say or give, will tell how much I LOVE YOU!

Reminds me a lot of the e-mail that goes around about a little boy who died and his mother found a note from him "and God." He was telling why things happened the way they did and how much he loved her. And he told her that nobody but her could see that note... just a blank piece of paper to everyone else. Sometimes our understanding of God and our sense of being adored by Him can be hard to explain to the average person because God's "love notes" to us are often so subtle but so real that only we can see them. In fact, I feel the warmest God-hug coming on. :::smile:::
