It is the most amazing love story.
In January my daughter was playing outside. I was inside sitting on the couch, exhausted from a hard day. Suddenly she busted through the front door shouting, “Mommy Mommy, you got flowers from Jesus!” She was carrying a box. There was no name on it. I asked her how she knew they were from Jesus. She said, “the lady who dropped them off told me so.” I opened the box and there were 16 beautiful roses…a red/pink color…absolutely gorgeous. The card that accompanied the flowers said: You are loved, appreciated, and much more beautiful than all the flowers in the world.—-Love, Jesus
I began to get tears in my eyes. I can’t recall a time when I received flowers by delivery. Usually if I get flowers it’s because it’s my anniversary or something like that. And I’ve never received flowers from Jesus before. My heart was so incredibly warmed to think that someone would do this for me.
Yesterday, I had a similar experience. I went to the mail box and there was a card for me. Inside there was a note that read: Dear Melissa, Don’t worry! I’ve got everything under control. Love Always, Jesus.
Again, I was overwhelmed with emotion. I wasn’t expecting this. My life has been running fairly smooth lately. I haven’t been worried or stressed out. Who is behind my Jesus notes?
I got a call from my mom last night. She was crying. She was very upset. She had a biopsy done and more cancer was found. Totally different than the lung cancer she already has. I felt like my heart was going to stop. There didn’t seem to be enough air in the room to breath. Why? Why does she have more cancer now? I don’t know how to handle this. My mom is so young.
Sitting beside the phone was the note I’d received that day in the mail. “Don’t worry! I’ve got everything under control.” Amazing. Just when I needed it, I had it. The love of my life took care of me. And through some divine intervention, Jesus sent me the words I needed before I would actually need them.
No one on this earth could do that. My husband was so sweet and did his best to comfort me. But it was the words of Jesus that brought me comfort last night.
The greatest love story ever told should be the love story between me and Jesus…..you and Jesus. I don’t think I could get through life without Him. I know I couldn’t.
Not only does Jesus love us, but He sees us and He knows everything we go through. He cares. And He has everything under control.
Now that’s an amazing love!

So many women share the same struggles in marriage. Hang in there! Choose to love! Just don’t give up hope.
