Jr. High Love Notes
Recently, my mom gave me a box of things from when I was a kid. In it were various trinkets of my childhood. One of them was a note from a girl. This note was your standard note full of giggles, and strange comments that pre-teens make.
I don’t know why I kept that note but what struck me was that this note was about basic things that were important to me and her. She wrote about friends and family (and how mean they were) and about our plans for the weekend.
It makes me wonder about how often we send notes to God? How often do we just tell God about the basic things? It is easy to pray when everything is horrible and hopefully when things are great we remember to say thank you, but how often do we pray when things are just “ok?” 1 Thessalonians 5:17 says to pray without ceasing, if we do that we eventually run out of bad things and good things and we move on to just the “ok” things.
I know I don’t pray that way enough, maybe I should take some cues from my Jr. High crush and just talk about the regular stuff.
