Tonight, I was cuddling with our newborn daughter Ellie on the couch and explaining to her how much we love her. Macey was curled up next to us so I asked Macey to explain to Ellie how much she loves her. “I love you as big as I am” was her response. I’m sure to Macey that this was a grand statement of her love for her tiny sister.
After we said prayers in bed tonight, Macey said to me, “I love you as big as I am!”
Proud to be able to top her and prove that I love her more, I quickly retorted, “I love you as big as I am!”
As a quick and gentle reminder, I immediately understood God to be saying to me, “I love you as big as I am.”
No wonder I struggle to fathom that.
