Knowing I am Loved

I know that I am Loved…

when I receive a bouquet of withered daisies

clutched in a small hand

that road a school bus all the way home

just to bring me joy

I know that I am Loved…

when I am given a spontaneous kiss with

no thought of the little cheeks sticky

with sweet jelly mixed with dirt

I know that I am Loved…

when my husband goes on an errand and

spends much more than he should because:

“I thought you would like this”

I know that I am Loved…

when no one can help comfort best but Mommy

then to have the reward of a nursing babe

smiling up at me; no care

that her little face is now covered with milk

I know that I am Loved…..

when the Lord meets me by still waters

and listens to my cry

when He comforts me and shows me that He is all I need

and when I remember He gave His life that

I might be complete in Him

of all the loves this is the purest

is it able to be fully understood?

Praise the Lord…I am truly Loved!
