I don't know about you but God's love is something that I OFTEN overlook. It's not that I don't want it or don't work at doing what's right so that I can feel it, but for some reason or another it isn't a strength of mine to be able to look at something and say "This is proof that God loves me!". I know deep down that He does love me and that I have proof of that all around me, but again, for some reason or another that is something that I am not sensitive to and that I struggle with.
...And then I realized this is my proof:
These little boys (and baby girl) are proof of God's love for me!
(*I do need to add that I was reading a friends blog and she had said that her kids were "Proof of God's love". It was actually her blog post that hit me like a ton of bricks and made me want to post this.So I certainly cannot take credit for this epiphany, but wanted to add it this way instead of in the middle of the post.)
**I also want to add that just because some people don't have kids doesn't mean that God doesn't love them. My point here is just that some times it's in the "simple", every-day things that we get so accustomed to looking at or being around that we forget that God's love is surrounding us. It takes opening our eyes to recognize that what's right in front us is proof that God is aware and loves us.
