As Mrs. McCorkindale’s and Jinny’s bus drew into Edinburgh again, Jinny’s memories flooded in. They were to stay at a hotel just off Princes Street and have some time on the Royal Mile. Jinny loved Edinburgh. She loved the history and the excitement of being in the capital city. She decided to have a rest and possibly lie in the next morning before hitting the city. Mrs. McCorkindale told Jinny to just go around town by herself for she had some old friends she needed to visit. However Jinny felt that she was running on empty and she was running out of resources. Her experiences on this trip were wonderful. She knew, however, that she was here for something important to be revealed to her in her life. She wasn’t here as a tourist. Leading up to this she had felt changed but she still was not sure why Mrs. McCorkindale had brought her back to Scotland at this time. Jinny went up the Royal Mile and wandered in and out of stores and past the old houses. She wandered into a little square that she had never been in before called the Writers’ Square. In the museum there was a display of letters that Robert Burns had written to various people. Jinny was really moved by the way he had signed his letters: I am ever yours, Robert Burns. As Jinny went around the display, she felt the love and affection in the writing of Burns and the way he signed his letters came back time and time again to her: I am ever yours.

All that had happened to Jinny on this trip, all that she had experienced came flowing into her fully. She now knew deep within herself why Mrs. McCorkindale had brought her back to Scotland. She now felt beyond any doubt what her future was to hold. She walked out of the museum and went down some stairs where she found herself walking down towards Princes Street Gardens. She sat there for the longest time listening to the birds and feeling the warmth of the sun on her face. Jinny felt contentment in her life that she had never felt before. I am ever yours and you are ever mine. As she sat there she felt that Mrs. McCorkindale was sitting right next to her. Slowly she opened her eyes and looked at the bench. But she was alone apart from the tourists walking past. If she had only looked around she would have seen Mrs. McCorkindale standing by the Scott monument with a tear of compassion and love in her eye: I am ever yours.

When have you felt love beyond your understanding? Have you ever felt a profound presence of God in your life affirming how much you are loved? Take time today to sit and feel and know that God is saying to you; I am ever yours and you are ever mine.
