it’s so refreshing when you have an unexpected conversation with real friends about things dear to you
that happened to me today
a couple of precious friends and I were discussing the children of today
which lead to our discussing our own personal children
which lead us to the topic of love.
You know I thought I knew what love was….
teeny bopper love…
high school sweetheart love…
Wedding day love…
and then baby love…
but when our baby love dreams took a twist and a turn down a four year detour that put me on bed rest for six months.
.. I ventured into a whole new level of LOVE….
never leave me nor forsake
kind of LOVE
my Savior’s love.
I had accepted HIM as a young child, read of HIS love and spoke of His love many times..
but during my time alone while waiting on baby love
I truly EXPERIENCED my Savior’s love …
and then just when I think my love tank “runneth over”
HE allowed our baby love dream to finally come true!!!
which leads me to one of the first few days after we brought baby love home
I remember vividly
as he napped and
I lay around him like a crescent moon
thinking to myself
“and I thought I knew love”
I don’t know enough….
But this I know.
When I was a child, I spoke and thought and reasoned as a child. But when I grew up, I put away childish things. 12 Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity.[c] All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely.
13 Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love.
