The train rattled on from London, Ontario to Ottawa. I noted how the snow became more evident as we got closer to our destination. We arrived, and my son-in-law and two little grandsons met me at the station. All smiles and chit-chat, we drove to their home. The snow pristine, with not a foot print in sight was piled high in their back yard.
The next day my daughter dressed the boys in suitable attire while my son-in-law prepared a snow slide from the deck to the bottom of the yard. Grandma—that’s me--watched as they, oblivious to the cold squealed with delight as they rode the track on their toboggan and I filmed the action through the window!
I thought how secure and happy those little boys were, and I thanked God for their loving parents. Although their love and attentiveness to their children is nothing compared to the love God has for us.
We are assured over and over again of God’s love for us in the holy scriptures. A scripture that is a favourite one for me is “The Lord hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with loving kindness have I drawn thee.” (Jeremiah 31:2-4 KJV). And how I can testify of that everlasting love. God loves even those who don’t serve Him. Let’s pray that they too will experience and know His everlasting love.
