Simple, Life-Changing Love

Dear Lewis,

You’re sitting on the floor, smiling from ear to ear, mumbling unintelligibly, and banging your fist against a plastic plate. And I couldn’t love you more than I do right now.

God must look at what I do everyday and see a fool mumbling unintelligibly, banging plastic plates. And he couldn’t love me more than he does right now.

I love you, Lewis. God loves you more.

– Dad

This letter is simple. As I typed it out I thought, “I need to add something to it, something that will give it more depth.” This thought shows I didn’t fully understand the depth of the experience with Lewis. It shows I don’t fully understand the depth of God’s love.

Are you like me? Does the simple thought, “God loves me,” not shake you to the core? Does it not humble you, while at the same time infusing your soul with hope, passion, life and love? Why can’t we allow our whole life to be revolutionized by this simple, childish thought?
