But you are a chosen generation,
a royal priesthood, a holy nation,
His own special people,
that you may proclaim the praises of Him
who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.
1 Peter 2:9
I sent David an email when I came to this realization telling him that I wanted to remember this feeling and for him to ask me about it. I wanted him to know that it wasn't the gifts, but it was his preparation, his saving money, his being so careful to surprise me, his premeditation that made me feel overwhelming love. It was his display of love for me that concreted HIS love for me. That is the greatest gift!!
