He Loved Me First

I read this Saturday and it seemed like a fitting closing to our paperie...
When I was in the sixth grade, I looked over at a little girl named Joyce Louise Gentry and I wrote her a love note. Then, I walked past her desk and dropped it at her desk. She's now Joyce Louise Rogers. She's my bride and my beloved.
That little note made such an impression on her that she still has it in a little scrapbook. It must have been good! But you know, from that time on she began to take an interest in me. Do you know why she loves me? I first loved her.
Do you know what the Bible is? It is God's love letter to you. It is God saying to you, I have set my eye upon you. I love you!


P.S. Just a quick note... If you didn't get the email this morning about the papercraft sale that JoAnn's is having today, go here.

  6. What a sweet story. Whose is it? I'm always reminded of John 3:16 the ever famous scripture. But it doesn't say For God kinda loved the world. It says For God so loved the world.

    Thanks for sharing Polly! Hope your household is feeling better!!

    Love,
    Julie
