Love Day

The LORD appeared to us in the past, saying:
"I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with loving-kindness."
Jeremiah 31:3
That's what it says.
We are loved with an EVERLASTING love.
Not like everlasting gobstoppers that really don't last that long.
This is the true meaning of everlasting... forever love... isn't that what we all long for?
Someone who sees who we are, to the very core, and yet... loves us unconditionally?
And there it is, simple and pure and free.
"For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, 
so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life." 
John 3:16
While I cherish the love of my Husband, Children, Family and Friends, 
this forever LOVE is what I cling to the hardest.
God won't send me chocolates or flowers today, but its okay... 
He gave me a greater gift. He gave up His very life for me.

It is only when we have the love of God in us that we can truly love others. Any other kind of "love" is selfish and counterfeit. Thanks for this inspiring post!
