200 came and went virtually unnoticed...I was loving my pillow along with a list of other various simple pleasure things.
300 slipped by with very little fanfare and had me appreciating Pizza Hut at the end of a short week that seemed very long!
And the wonderful thing is...I am beginning to finally realize myself that even though my writing muscles will eventually wear out, there will always be...well...let's not jump ahead just yet.
So what is it I'm loving today?
I've tried and tried to find a fancy way to say it.
I've written it and rewritten it in my head.
I took several photos during the course of the morning; tried & failed to catch the sunrise (too cloudy), hymn lyrics on the wall during church (too hard to read), lillies on the front of the platform (too close)...and finally settled on this simple sketch from the worship folder.
I've looked at scripture and selected several worthy pieces only to realize that even they were too much.
Because it's really much more simple than any of my over worked efforts.
It's really very...very...simple.
God loved us so much that He gave us his most precious gift...his Son.
I don't know how many of you are parents...but I can't think of anything I would have a harder time giving up than one of my children. I would (and do) give up a lot FOR them...but I don't think I could give one of them up.
God gave us his Son, knowing how we would treat him, and knowing that it was the only way that things could be set right once and for all.
He gave us His Love. And when we love him and believe in him and accept him, we get to live with him forever.
It's really that simple...
Today...I love LOVE.
Happy Easter...He is Risen!
