The Best Present

Last night, I met Nathan and Larissa and kids in Amarillo for supper. They followed me home and spent the night. Madi wanted to ride with Grandma. If you have ever ridden very far with a four year old, you know that approximately 1000 different conversations can take place in a little over an hour. (I hate to confess this but some of them were way above my head, so I just nodded and said hmmm.....)
One of our conversations revolved around her "upcoming" (April) birthday. She told me she planned on having a party and a chocolate cake. She told me exactly what she wanted me to buy her for her birthday. I said "We will have to wait and see because Grandma does not have a job so she doesn't have a lot of money right now." Little Miss Madi was real quiet for awhile and then she said, "Grandma, you just bring loves and kisses to my party. That will be the best present." Her comment just supported my theory that I indeed have the most wonderful grandchildren in the whole world. My love was enough for her because of our relationship.
That is true with us as Christians too. God loves us so much and yet we continue to ask for larger homes, more money, faster cars, nicer clothes, better jobs, etc. However, because of our relationship with Him, because He is who He is and He loves us, His love is enough-----and is the BEST PRESENT. We are so blessed!!!

John 3:16--For God so LOVED the world (me) that He GAVE His only begotten Son . . . "
