A Love That Hurts

It happened.

I thought it had already happened, but I had only just tasted it. Just a morsel.

What I'm referring to is the point in which I'm sure every mother comes to when your heart just absolutely aches with love for your child.

A love so strong it hurts.

I was standing over the kitchen sink washing dishes and Matt was on the bar behind the sink holding Cole. He (Cole) was in such a cheerful mood and was giving us the sweetest coos and smiles.

My heart melted, the tears came, and all at once I was experiencing the richest joy, yet most intense pain ever. It's the kind of feeling you get when you know you're all in, there's no going back, but you also know that you're totally in the Lord's hands with where the future should take you.

Simply put, I know that when you love someone deeply you run the risk of getting your heart broken....cause in an instant God could call it quits on their life. But you know what?

That's a risk I'm willing to take.

Love deeply today.
