Love Does


Oh this smile of this little boy & Oh this smile of this little girl~

Comes from the deepest part of their heart

as they know that they are

LOVED

beyond a shadow of a doubt..

Life is about them ~

as it has to be

because I don't know many

2year olds & 4 month olds

who can care for themselves.

Their mommy and daddy

see to it that all of their needs are met

& shower them with a

LOVE

that keeps giving

from the wee early mornings into the

wee late evening hours~

because

that is what

LOVE DOES.

So these little babies

TRUST

their parents (& of course their grandparents!)

without even knowing that are

as they

~don't worry

~don't hold grudges

but most of all

wonder

"AM I LOVED?".

To be a child~

to just enjoy every moment

doing what you do best

& that is just being

yourself

because that is the only thing

you know to be.

And you can~

because

their is a

LOVE

covering over you

every minute

that will never let you out of it's sight

because that is what

LOVE DOES.

So maybe what we all need to do is to just

throw on our snowsuits & sit in the snow

& smile with our whole hearts~

just being our best self~

which is ourself

because who else can we be

when we know

beyond a shadow of a doubt

that no matter how old we are

we are so deeply

LOVED

because

we are

HIS CHILD~

"See what great love the FATHER has lavished on us, that we should be called

CHILDREN OF GOD!" (I John 3:1).

It isn't rocket science~

even though at times it feels like it

when we are in the midst of living as adults

and dealing with life happenings that we wish we didn't have to deal with~

But to take a moment to

RECEIVE

the

LOVE of our FATHER

that HE so LAVISHES on us~

I mean really receive it & believe it

from our heads to our hearts

then just maybe

we will see each other

wearing snowsuits

just sitting in the snow

with a

smile

that looks up

and says

THANK YOU GOD

for just

creating lil 'ole me

for just

watching over lil 'ole me

for just

LAVISHING YOUR LOVE

over lil 'ole me

just because that is what

LOVE DOES

and we would no longer wonder

AM I LOVED?

"And so we know and rely on the love God has for us.

God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them" (I John 4:16)
