God is Head-Over-Heels in Love with You

Posted on: 7-15-112016

Today my husband and I spent the day with our two year old grandson at City Park in New Orleans.  The weather was perfect for a day spent outdoors and we enjoyed every moment with the one who has us wrapped around his little fingers.  He has a great love for trains, so when we rode the train that circles around the whole park, he was elated.  So elated in fact that we rode it eight times in a row.  Each ride is about fifteen minutes long, so we spent a good portion of our day riding that train.  As soon as it would pull back up at the station, he would start telling me, “Again, Nana!  Again!”.  We would jump off, run back around to the front to get in line, and board the train again…again…and again!  Now the first couple of times around were fine, but by the time I had ridden that train over and over, it started to lose its appeal to me.  So, why, you may ask, did I keep on getting back on?  One and one reason only…because I love my little red-headed, blue-eyed boy and my little red-headed, blue-eyed boy loves trains!  How I felt about riding the train was irrelevant because of how he felt about riding the train.  Every time he squealed with delight when they blew the horn and every time he shouted, “choo choo”, this Nana melted like putty in his hands. If we wouldn’t have had to leave, I would probably still be riding that train tonight because his excitement was worth it to me.  Just as I would do anything for my grandson, God will do the same for us!  He loves us and delights in us.  He enjoys spending time with us for no reason other than to be with us.  What thrills us, thrills Him.  He loves to see us excited and enjoying life.  He never gets bored with us or wishes he was somewhere else besides with us because we are His number one priority, His number one love, and His number one favorite thing in the world. There is nowhere in the world God would rather be than with you, dear one!  You are His greatest joy and He is head-over-heels in love with you!

“Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God.” 1 John 4:7
