New International Version (NIV)
16 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
"Many of My children limp through their lives starved for love, because they haven't learned the art of receiving. This is essentially an act of faith: believing that I love you with boundless, everlasting Love." Jesus Calling- Sarah Young
Isn't this true? It's hard to give and receive unconditional love. My children have taught me so much about this type of love. There is nothing they could do that could keep me from being completely in love with them. They fail, they stumble and make silly mistakes. They can make me pull the hairs right out of my scalp and sometimes I just want them to stop talking for five minutes of quietness, but I am head over heals for them. I miss them as soon as I drop them at school or with Nana. When I'm apart from them, I can't wait to get back and squeeze them. I want them to be close to me and turn to me when in need. I want them to know I would do absolutely anything for them. I want to know them at their deepest level, their dreams and fears and passions. I want them to want to spend time with me. I think this is the way God loves us. Most love is conditional... I love you when you do this... or perform like this... or act like this... or make me feel like... the list goes on. I love these two babies to the moon and back and nothing could change it.
We had a fun bedtime last night...
This is Libbie when she is trying to hold her eyelids open
Big Brother joined us and you can see his reaction to Fancy Nancy... less than thrilled
And look what I found in my bed!!!! This hasn't happened in over a month... He slept with us all night... and just like every Saturday they were both up before 7AM.... Chipper and ready for the day.
I love these two!
