Useful. Wow...

I have written you a letter I will call a "Love Note". You're getting this "Love Note" because I want to be better at Love and help other people learn about it as well. I will write and send a "Love Note" like this to a different person each day for thirty days. It is important for me to focus on my personal experience with Love, not give advice, direction or suggestions. For this reason, my "Love Notes" will always go to someone I have never met and know nothing about, and I chose you at random to get this note.  We are strangers, but I am hopeful that what I write will somehow have meaning to you.

It is almost 6:00 a.m. on a Sunday morning. If someone had told me that I would be up, awake (by choice) and looking forward to coffee, a granola bar and church at this hour, I would have never believed it. There are a lot of things I do these days I never thought would be "me". And, since I have entered into this "Love Notes" experience, I am being tasked with opportunities to "do" Love that I haven't seen in many years. I believe that this time spent focused more on Love is making me useful. Wow... useful is good. Maybe, if I continue on this path I will become more reliable to model God's Love at what could be a tipping point for someone. Whatever the case, I may end up doing "Love Notes" for longer than the thirty days I committed to because it is helping me so much. The first day or two, I was wondering if I would be able to keep it up for thirty days. Now I am wondering if I should ever stop.

Well, that's my love letter to you; thank you for reading. May God bless you and enrich your life. Of all the people I could have mailed this "Love Note" to, I chose you.  Your name was picked at random, but I am certain it wasn't by chance.
