Just Because

By Missey Butler
Guest Writer -- Of all the lovely things my husband has ever done for me, one thing he did early on in our relationship will forever linger in my heart as special.

For no apparent reason, I opened the door one morning to find the florist guy standing there holding a bouquet of the most beautiful coral-colored roses. My heart leapt as I reached out, took the flowers, and just about shut the door on the poor fellow before realizing I had to sign something.

I was so taken by the moment that for a split second I lost myself in anticipation. I closed the door, leaned back against it, fumbled with the little envelope, and finally got the envelope open. With a soft sigh I read the two words on the card: “Just Because.”

Immediately, I felt my heart and my cheeks flush warmly. My sweet guy could not have spoken his unconditional love to me more clearly.

I’ve often thought about just how lovely and fitting it would be to send the very same message of love to God, a “Just Because” in response to His unselfish love toward all of mankind.

  • Just because You created life in all its wonder and beauty.
  • Just because You clothed yourself in humanity and walked among us.
  • Just because You so loved the world that You gave Your only begotten Son.
  • Just because You are the Great I Am… and there is no other.

All of these and a thousand more beside are the reasons for our complete and total love, just because… of “Who” You are!
