On February 14, 2013 I went to the door to discover boxes of roses! My husband had completely lost his mind and sent our daughter and myself 100 roses each! Now let me clear this up and say that this is not a normal Valentine Day gift from my love. He usually picks up a lovely bouquet and takes me to a nice dinner. One of my sons was home sick from school and he helped me scrabble around the house looking for vases, tarnished silver tea pots and mason jars to house this many flowers. It took us nearly an hour to get them all trimmed and rearranged. This time was a wonderful lesson for my son and I. Not a lesson on how we should go crazy on Valentine’s Day, no, that wasn’t it at all. I thought back on the flowers I received last year. I thought of the 2 dozen roses my daughter had received from a boy. And then it hit me right in the heart. One can never out give the Father. I’m not talking about my wonderful husband, my daughters daddy. I’m talking about The Father. I was overwhelmed by God’s love. I may receive many gifts from loved ones in my life but nothing compares to the gift of God’s grace. His love is boundless. His love is a crazy love. His love is excessive. His love is over the top. His love quenches my thirsty soul. He longs to lavish His love on me, on you. And all He asks of me is that I accept His love. My wish today is that you are blessed by the Father’s lavishing love.
P.S. I was sick on 2/14 so I stayed home with the boys and my hubby took our daughter to dinner and lavished love on her. Makes this mamas heart soar!
