Wherever You Are...

My Marky at 1
My Love will Find You...

"In the green of the grass...in the smell of the sea...in the clouds floating by...at the top of a tree...in the sound crickets make at the end of the day...

"You are loved.  You are loved.  You are loved," they all say.

"My love is so high, and so wide and so deep, it's always right there, even when you're asleep."
My Julia at 3 months
"So hold your head high and don't be afraid to march to the front of your own parade."

"If you're still my small babe or you're all the way grown, my promise to you is you're never alone."

"You are my angel, my darling, my star...and my love will find you, wherever you are."

"You are loved."

I read this book to Julia during nap time last week and I couldn't help the tears.  Nancy Tillman is an awesome author and this book (I only picked a few of the pages here to share with you, the whole book is awesome) is one of my favorites.

It talks about this mother/father's love that is so high, so wide, and so deep that she/he could follow their child wherever they go.  It of course reminded me of our heavenly Father's love for us. 

God's love is so deep and so radical and so amazing we cannot even fathom how big it is. 

Parents are lucky to get a glimpse of this miraculous love when they have children of their own.  It's a bond that goes deeper than even words could explain.

Our love can reach mountains, stretch itself, it can fly, swim, you name it, our love can do it!  My favorite line is..."Make a big splash!  Go out on a limb!  My love will find you.  My love can swim!"

All of us as parents want our children to be daring and brave and dream big in their lives.  We want what is best for them and we want the world for them.  We don't want our children to limit themselves or think small.  And I believe God's love is even better than that!  God pushes us to change and transform and conquer new dreams and goals each day if we are brave enough and strong enough to do it!

Here's to a great week filled with big dreams!  And lots of love.

Happy Monday :)
