Just a Note

Standard

This morning I was prompted to write Katie a note to lift her spirits. She’s been down physically and emotionally since her back pain flared up again. So I sat down and wrote a little note to let her know how much I appreciate everything she does for our family. As I wrapped up, I felt this slight desire to gain something from this note…like points or something. I quickly confessed this to God. I was repulsed by that. All I really wanted to do was encourage my wife and tell her how much I love her!
When I came home from the gym, Katie had found the note. She thanked me with a hug and a kiss. I guess I gained something, but more importantly, I communicated my love to my wife, and I was obedient to the Lord’s prompting.
