“Of course I do…I will always love you, no matter what” I answered her, with tears in my own eyes as I swooped her up into my arms to hold her close.
These five words have come out of our precious girl’s mouth a lot lately…and each time she asks me this question, my heart aches as I share words that I hope will reassure her heart and mind.
It’s hard to believe that two years ago we met He Tong in China…a scared little girl that rarely smiled and had never experienced the love of a family.
But love alone is worth the fight...and here we are two years later.
Jenna knows she is loved and she adds so much joy to our family. Our sweet girl talks non-stop and is full of spunk, laughter, and life! Yet no matter how much love we pour into Jenna’s tender heart and soul, it breaks my heart that she sometimes questions our love.
I suppose we all do this from time to time…we wonder if others will love of us if we make a mistake or if we don’t perform the way we “should” or if we don’t look the way we think we “should” or if we…
Only the love of Christ can do this.
Just like I must continue to believe that God loves me no matter what...forever.
