Early in the morning she tugs at my legs saying
" Mommy, guess how much I love you? "
"How much?" I reply
" Mmmm, as much as a tiny ant"
"Aww" I say with a pouty face.
"Alright, alright, alright" she says, "I love you as much as a tiny marshmellow."
Yet another pouty face.
Then her face starts beaming and she says so proudly, "I LOVE you as much as GOD'S love"
Isn't that the sweetest thing ~
This started after she learned in Sunday school that God's love can't be measured, not with a measuring tape, not with a scale. That His love goes from eternity to eternity
At night she ends the day with a tiny prayer, and then she casually says to God -
"Hey God, I love You as much as your OWN love...Amen"
and I imagine God smiling down at her beaming with pride. He truly does love us~
I hope you experience some of that love today
