You think you know love. You think you know the ‘I would give anything, die for you’ type of love. And then you have a child. And your concept of love changes, forever.
And the most amazing thing is, each time I look into those eyes and feel my heart swell with love, I know that what I feel is just a fraction of the love my Lord feels for me. How blessed are we? To be loved unconditionally and so completely by the God who gave his very son’s life for our own. Amazing.
Happy Mother’s Day.
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written: “For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.” No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord (Romans 8:35-39).
complete, all consuming, knock me to my knees love.
From the moment I saw those sweet eyes, my entire world changed.
And I began to truly comprehend the love my Father and my Savior have for me.
