Thomas Wilmer Dewing, “Tobias and the Angel”, 1887 (The Met)

.

Since my daughter’s earliest days, we have played this little game:

.

I look at her and say, “Sometimes you love someone so much...”

And she softly responds, “…it makes you cry.”

.

We both get glassy eyed and gently smile.

.

Love

.

What is it?

.

“It” is a person

His name is Jesus

His skin is many colors

He is 33 years old, and also 7, and also 84, and also 40…

.

He is God. He is alive. He lives in you and me.

.

Tell Him that you love Him.

It is Jesus.

.


.

Sometimes you love someone so much…it makes you cry.”

    Ah, something to share with our 5 year old grandson and others who are very special–like a husband, children, family and very special friends who ECHO God’s love.
