Sitting at an olde farmtable with bible opened and chestnut and clove candle flickering....
...I began thinking of my family.
At our house we have this saying:
I love you more.
My Momma started it and it just
We all like it,
say it, and
look for new ways to prove it
beyond just the saying,
but also in the doing.
when Myguy grabs me out of the blue,
Dipping me back like he's Fred Astaire; and kissing
longer than a peck. It makes me giggle hard and suddenly
I'm loved... more.
the love birds with all their
pepperoni- heart pizza,
and her writing him love notes in chalk,
For toasted sloppy joe buns,
his favorite chocolate sundaes with nuts,
and finding that surprise heating pad
warming under the blanket
to crawl into.
So many kindnesses and sweet
little ways to love on
This morning I sat thinking about these love mores.
and I'm thankful for all of it.
Reading in the book of John I know ....
That God loves more and
most of all
Because all of love... every bit of it comes
We love because he first loved us.
"Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us."
1 John 4:7-12
