Unworthy

I am overwhelmed today by God's love displayed to me through my husband and children. I look at myself and see so many things I do not like. I see my faults and failures all too plainly. I am truly unworthy of my Father's love, and yet he adores me. That is so far beyond my understanding. My Father has poured his heart of love into my husband and children and it flows out to me unreservedly. I am blessed by the sweet kisses from my daughter, hugs given to me by big boy arms, and little baby fingers stroking my face. Words and songs and years of devotion (not to mention an enormous amount of patience) given to me by my husband stuns me. On I journey through life...never will I be perfect or worthy of God's love. I can trust, however, that God will always be near. He will always love me even though I am imperfect. I thank God for my precious children. The simple things often overlooked as expressions of God's love, like little giggles, cheerful smiles, secrets told and even delicate tears I no longer want to overlook. The trust given to me as hearts unfold, the words "Hey, Mommy..." spoken over a thousand times a day, and the gentle shoulder rubs by my husband in the evening, I no longer want to see as common. They are all beautiful expressions of love. Thank you God for loving me in all my unworthiness....

Sweet words honey...you are so very wonderful. You are right too, you are certainly loved by all of us. Speaking about "perfection;" A "perfect" cookie isn't determined by itself or "self-deterimined", but by the holder of the cookie or the one wanting to eat it. God is so sweet to look at us through His grace. The cookie, or we, will always see our faults, but he made us human/that way...and loves us anyways.

I love you...

your Jw

P.S. I'm still smittened by you :)
