Her cardboard house was set up.
Her doll babies were out.
I sat nearby with her one month old brother in my arms.
I was burping him.
So, she began to burp her’s.
I grabbed my phone and couldn’t get a better picture than this, but it was a precious moment, none the less.
Next week our daughter returns to University.
I’m blessed to get to watch the kids a few times a week.
Grandbabies are so fun!
To look at our little granddaughter’s sweet smile and remember my own girls as wee people.
To listen to the cute baby noises of our grandson and remember the bundle of blanket which held our newborn son.
These gifts seem all the sweeter the second time around.
I love being a mother.
I love each of our precious children.
It’s compounded and multiplied when adding in grandbabies!
And it brings an even more precious memory to mind.
As much as I love these people, young and younger, God loves me even more.
Because His love is so much deeper, purer, and unmeasurable.
My sinful heart has major limitations, which hinders my ability to love as God does.
And yet He’s teaching me daily how to love more.
Grandbabies are easy to love.
Just one look at our grandchildren or children and my heart seems to expand.
Does God feel that way when He looks at me?
Romans 5:5 NKJV — Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.
Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. He who does not love does not know God, for God is love. In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him. In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.
I John 4:7-11 NKJV
for the Father Himself loves you, because you have loved Me, and have believed that I came forth from God.
John 16:27 NKJV
Not only does He love me far beyond my understanding, the same is true for you.
What a blessing to be loved by God!
