I've since learned how deeply He loves me. Do you realize that if I were the only person on the face of the planet, He still would have sent Christ to earth. And Christ loves me so much, that even if they didn't think I'd ever repent, He still would have suffered and died for me. That is pretty powerful. I know that life isn't easy and that we go through a ton of pain, some more than others, but I know that we don't always understand the reasons. "There must needs be oposition in all things." We can't know joy if we've never experienced pain. We can't be happy if we've never felt sad. We can't appreciate health if we haven't been sick. I'm not saying that every sickness is going to be healed in this life. But I believe that He wants us to return to him. I know that I can be with my family for eternity if we live the way we should. That brings me so much comfort. It helps me through my hardest times.
I didn't mean to go off on a tangent, I just have been thinking about this a lot lately.
Oh, I almost forgot, our theme tonight was COLOR ME BEAUTIFUL, so I made the girls a coloring book and we covered little boxes of crayons for them. Here is a sampling of the color pages.
You can find the images HERE on Bebo(though you do have to go look through the images for them).
