Beloved #fiveminutefriday

Five Minute Friday


My child is screaming.  He's mad about something indeterminable, and in taking five minutes to myself to write this I have missed it.  That's the funny thing about children, regardless of their state you can't help but love them completely.  You'd think that in these wee hours of the morning when he and I should be sleeping I'd want nothing to do with my angry alarm clock, who has once again returned to his sweet baby self and is repeating "oh, what is that" at my clicking keys.  But that's not that way it is.  Love is deep, love is eternal.  There is nothing he could do to stop me from loving him.

That's what gets me, I think.  The love I feel for this baby is just a fraction of the love God feels for me.  A sliver, so small it's barely even worth mentioning.  That's how I know God did not abandon me during the fires, though it took years for me to realize that.  That's how I know with great certainty, that Christ died for our sins.  If God loved the world so much that he was willing to send His only begotten Son for me, His love must be so great that there aren't words for it.  

How blessed we are to live this life, to see the sun peaking over the ridges of distant mountains, eager to share the day with us.  How blessed we are to be able to walk, to sing, to think, to write.  God, in His infinite wisdom and glory created us, so that we might live and love and love Him in return.  How blessed we are.

  1. crazier still... As much as you love you love your son... God loves him 1000% more than that... can you imagine?
    and yet giving all that He has equal love for you.
