In the third chapter of Ephesians it talks about really grasping how much God loves us. There's a phrase in the Amplified that I just love, it goes something like this. "...that we would come to know practically, through experience the love of God."
Our oldest daughter Meghan graduated from college this May and is heading off to Bible School here in a couple of weeks. It’s been a time of reflection for me as I’ve tried to put my mind around the last 22 years since Meghan was born into our family. My goal as a dad was a pretty simple, yet at the same time incredibly important. You see my goal has always been to love Meghan like God loves Meghan so that as she grew up she would know, practically through experience, the love that her Father God has for her, and even more, that He approved of her, and was proud of her.
