Moved to Tears

On Tuesday as I was getting ready for work I heard my cell phone chime. I saw that one of my sons had sent me a text: "Hi Mom. Have a great day. Love you." It was so special! After I sent him back a text I left for work, and as I drove I thought about how much I love my kids. Then I thought about God - how He loved me (and you!!) so much He sent His Only Son to die a cruel death on a cross so that I can have eternal life. I began to cry as I thought about it. I don't think that I could watch any of my kids die for someone else, and certainly not for someone who's bad. But that's just what God did. He sent Jesus to die for my sins and yours. What amazing love. What an amazing God!
