He’d say you’re amazing.
He’s so proud of you.
He’d say, he remembers the day you were born.
And that even though he made you, designed you – he still , was caught up in wonder at the sight of you.
He’d tell you, he remembers every coo and sigh.
He say he remembers potty training and that for your parents sake, he’s really glad that it’s over.
He’d tell you that he was there all through your school years.
A proud papa as you learned to read and write.
And that he’d stayed up late with you while you struggled through Algebra.
He’d remind you of when you first fell in love, and that even though it didn’t work out that it awakened something in you.
Something that would later find itself complete in Him.
He’d tell you that he watched you dance at your wedding and couldn’t wait to be the one to dance with you someday.
He’d laugh and tell you with a little bit of irony that the day that your first child was born, he knew it would be a crazy adventure.
And not so secretly hoped that having children of your own would help you to understand him a little better.
He’d tell you that he knows where you’re at, both your actual coordinates and your heart’s location.
He’d want you to stop doubting yourself.
He’d want you to trust him, because he has a plan.
He’d want you to know that nothing has changed. . .
He’s still as crazy about you as the day you were born.
And more than anything, he wants to hold you close and tell you he loves you.
God told them, “I’ve never quit loving you and I never will!” Expect love, love, and more love!
Jeremiah 31:3 (The Message)
