“We love because he first loved us.” ~ I John 4:19

My little boy made my day today.

This morning, he came up to me and gave me a hug.  And then, as he was walking away, he said, “Love you.”  My heart melted, because it was the first time he said it to me first, and not in response to me saying it.

It made me wonder, how often do I tell God I love Him?  And just because, not in response to something He is doing in my life?  I think we could all stand to tell God more often how much we love Him, just because of who He is and who we are as His children.
