Love is…

Love is…

Your new pastor calling the day before surgery, even though he doesn’t really know you well yet.

Love is…

Your friend calling you and telling you not to make dinner tomorrow because she is having someone bring you and your mom a cooked meal.

Love is…

Your friends pounding on your door (scaring the crap out of you….Thanks guys) and singing Christmas carols, while your mom sits and sobs because she is so overwhelmed by the love and kindness.

This is what love is

God

Deep Thoughts with Mom

I have the most amazing mom.  There are times when we have these really deep conversations.  Usually after an email or 2 about songs we’ve heard.  Sometimes I get in these moods where certain songs just bring on the tears.  Usually it’s How Great is our God by Chris Tomlin, or I Will Rise by Chris.  Today my mom mentioned his version of Amazing Grace brings on the tears for her.  There are some of us who can take the words to these songs and apply them to our lives.  Where they were, where they could have gone, where they are now and God’s amazing grace that got us where we are now.  I don’t know what brings on these moods.  I think it’s the realization that the past is forgiven.  Never to be thought of again.

How can you not love a God who is so forgiving and loves you so much.
