let me count the ways......
In Love Actually Bill Nighy repeatedly croons "Love is all around us, it's every where I go". I've been struck by so many different expressions of love in the last couple weeks.
*A dad thumping his boy's shoulder on the way to surgery. "You'll be fine. You can do it. You are a tough boy." Over and over again.
*A daughter tucking a blanket around her mother in a hospital bed.
*A mom and dad hovered over an incubator in NICU day after day.
*A young man pacing back and forth across a waiting room.
*A text message from my mom saying "just let us know you made it to work safely."
*Yummy lunches made for the little boys I won't see for 11 whole hours.
*The prayer whispered in my ear, for a good day, early this morning.
How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are. 1 John 3:1
