I first heard the phrase, ‘kisses from heaven’ when reading an amazing book by Staci Eldredge called ‘Captivating’. Kisses from heaven are personal love messages God gives to each of us through something in our world that He knows is special just to us. Like me, for example, the sight of a horse (and watch out if it’s a miniature horse-that’s a sloppy wet kiss right there for me!), the sound of the wind, or anything having to do with children brings such joy to my soul that I feel wonderfully kissed from heaven.
These were my Sunday church kisses from heaven…
Kiss 1- a little 7-year old praying for an elderly woman
Kiss 2- seeing a teenage girl run up to her father during the music time, wrap her arms around his waist, and continued to sing songs to God while holding each other
Kiss 3-talking with Jonathan, a little boy from Latin America (who I had the privilege of praying with him months ago to receive the gift of salvation through Jesus Christ) telling me his story about how he came to this country, all the while chewing the gum I gave him like the gum had energizer batteries in them!
Maybe for you, it’s the sunset, the moon, guacamole, dancing like you’re on footloose, and on, and on… look around you and see all the ways that God is specifically loving on you and sending you customized kisses from heaven just for you!
P.S. Read a great book about heaven yesterday from a little boy’s experience called, “Heaven is for Real” written by his father, Todd Burpo-so powerful! And, God…He really loves children ; )
