Tigger loves Tinkerbell

You may be wondering what on earth this title is all about! My daughter, her friend and I were sat in a restaurant by the sea yesterday afternoon enjoying a late lunch. Our eyes were drawn to an aeroplane flying over the bay with a message fluttering from its tail.

After a minute or two we could make out the words

TIGGER LOVES TINKERBELL

Lucky Tinkerbell we thought, hoping said lady was at least looking at the sky and could see her message. Could see how much someone loved her, could see how much someone was prepared to do to show that love. Tigger was taking a big risk here.

It got me thinking. God’s message to us is written not only in the sky but in the beauty all around us. The Psalmist says the heavens declare the glory of God. Sun, moon, stars, planets in their place, all declare the glory of God. His love is like the ocean we sat beside.

God’s love message to us hung on a rough wooden cross under a dark sky on a dramatic day in history. His message hasn’t changed. His love for us cost Him everything. He took a risk for all of us.

How many people walking along the seafront yesterday read that message? How many more know about the greatest message of all? How many can read it?  How many want to read it?

I do hope Tinkerbell saw her message and Tigger’s costly gesture paid off. Just in case you’re reading this Tinkerbell, I think you ought know  – Tigger loves you!

About alicesapplesofgold

I'm a mother and grandmother, though not so old, and live in one of the most beautiful places in the country, Cornwall. fortunate enough to live by the sea I never want to be too far away from its sight and sound. I love music, words, painting, life, my family, my friends and most of all my faith. I live on the same roller coaster as everyone else but love to encourage others, support them when they're struggling and most of all want to have made a difference to the world by the time I leave it. I believe faith is an intimate part of everyday life and seek to relate the ordinary to the divine. It is the encouragement of others that has brought me to this point.
