My daughter, M., sent me these chat messages with my wife’s phone this afternoon as I traveled to Tianjin:
I remember when she was still an infant, how I hoped to one day hear M. say that she loves me back. For years now, she has returned my love and I believe it. The love is genuine. She’s not just repeating some words mommy and daddy taught her to say. My daughter really loves me.
If this is how I feel, how does Our Heavenly Father feel when our souls mature enough to genuinely love the First Person of the Trinity in return?
