When my three kids were little we taught them how to give "Butterfly Kisses". I am amazed to find out that so many people don't know what they are or how to do it. In case you're one of those people - it's when you come face to face with another person and put your eyes close enough to touch each other's eyelashes. Then you bat them - like the wings of a butterfly! Simple - special - face to face and very close.
God has been THAT CLOSE to me over the last few weeks... pouring on His Butterfly Kisses - reminding me how close He is and how much He loves me.
The LORD is close to the brokenhearted
and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
7 Show us Your unfailing love, O LORD,and grant us Your salvation.
8 I will listen to what God the LORD will say;
He promises peace to His people, His saints—
but let them not return to folly.
9 Surely His salvation is near those who fear Him,
that His glory may dwell in our land.
10 Love and faithfulness meet together;
righteousness and peace kiss each other.
11 Faithfulness springs forth from the earth,
and righteousness looks down from heaven.
12 The LORD will indeed give what is good,
and our land will yield its harvest.
13 Righteousness goes before Him
and prepares the way for His steps. [all emphasis mine]
[I AM the BELOVED of CHRIST]
