Does it get any sweeter than this?

Every night, the last thing I do before I go to bed is to sneak in to Neely's room to make sure that she is okay. I always feel her back or chest and then pray for her. And every day, I think I love her more than the day before. I know that I show her that I love her, but I don't think she will ever realize how much I do.

These feelings have really made me start thinking about my relationship with God. As God's child, he feels the same way about me as I do about Neely. He loves me more every day & I should be doing more in return. Just like I want to have a deep, loving relationship with Neely and it would hurt me if she rejected time with me, God wants the same from me. Honestly, there are days where it is easy for me to make excuses not to read my bible or do my quiet time, but thinking about that potential relationship that I am hurting motivates me to push away the excuses and do the things that I need to do.
