There are two absolutes in my life. Make that three. My husband loves me. God loves me. My grandkids love me. Wow, to be surrounded by such love is truly wonderous! I mean think about it. I've been married 34 years and if you got my sweet husband alone and asked him if he still loved me he'd say YES. And, if you looked into God's Word to see what He thinks about me, and ask Him if he still loves me, you'd fine an affirmative. And, then there are these three angels God gave to us in the form of Grandkids and WOW!!! Little Boy, Blake, who's barely 4 months old lays his little head on my shoulder and holds my finger as he sleeps. That's love. The two oldest (Lucas 6 and Cassidy 10) have shown me on numerous occasions just how much they love me by holding their arms out wide, wider and widest!

Jesus did that for me as well. He held His arms out on the cross and said, "I love you!" While my darling of 34 years still whispers sweet nothings into my ears, Jesus whispers sweet SOMETHINGS!

For this I am most fortunate of all women. This is where real peace comes from. Not from things. Things will perish. Things fall apart. But love lasts forever.
