Each time I pass by Jan I make sure to touch her. It may be a loving pat, a hug or simply making sure to brush up against her in passing. I do this because I want her to know I have an enduring passion to be with her. Jesus does the same with each of us. He is constantly touching our lives in some way. The busyness of life can dull us to His presence if we do not actively engage Him in each moment of every day. Just as it is in a marriage between and a man and a woman, so it is in our relationship with Jesus. A tender touch, affirming words and thoughtful expressions of love from both sides of the relationship will keep the flame of love burning.
