I think holidays should be given an entire week. Don't you? Especially birthdays. Actually a month for birthdays and a week for other holidays. So, Happy Valentine's Week!
Sometimes I focus so much on chocolates, what to get my husband, trying to think of something special to do for my kids, more chocolate, putting some red or pink touches around the house, and oh yeah, the chocolate, that I overlook the Greatest Love in my life. When I look at God's love, everything else seems so much like a shadow of the real thing. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE my family and I do like to get gifts, but the love He has for me is infinitely better.
Even my love for Him is so small and self-centered in comparison to His love for me. I learn what love is by looking at His love, but I only love Him and others when He consumes my life and decides to love through me.
It's all Him.
There are so many times that I just wish I could "get it." Wouldn't that be great, if we really had an idea of the magnitude of His love? Life would never be the same. I would never be the same. Might be a little like a newborn baby trying to understand the depth of his mother's love for him.
Well, here's my feeble attempt to take a look at His words about me, His child. These modified Scriptures make up the best, longest run-on sentence you've ever read.
