We love…

Today is another Wonderful Wednesday and I can’t help thinking that Christmas is right around the corner. This led me to reflect on the great love God has for us. I mean, think of it: He sent His Son to live as a human man who experienced everything we do so that He can truly understand us and our fears and anxieties.

This is amazing if you really stop and ponder it:

  • Jesus the baby, crying when He was hungry
  • Jesus the young boy, playing with simple, handmade wooden toys
  • Jesus the teenager, helping with his family to help Mary and Joseph
  • Jesus the  young man, working to help support the family
  • Jesus the grown man, preaching and teaching how to be saved
and finally,
  • Jesus the Savior, who performed the most selfless act in history when He died for our sins and rose again on the third day—all because of His great love for us.

“We love because

he first loved us.” 

—1 John 4:19

About Anna Popescu

I live in northern Arizona with my husband, Rick. I am blessed to say that Rick and I are at the bottom corners of a triangle where Jesus sits at the top corner. My children, Kathy & Alan, live in the Phoenix area and make this mom's heart thankful they have grown to be such wonderful and caring adults. Alan married in 2010, so I am also blessed with Denise as a special daughter-in-love. The Lord took my Mom home in 2007, and I miss her. My Dad and two sisters live in Florida while my two other sisters live in the Northeast. God has also blessed me and Rick with a local family of very close-knit friends. I love to write when I am able, but on the days when I am struggling with health issues and can't manage much of anything, I can at least crochet. These days I mainly crochet lapghans of various colors and sizes for area rehab centers and nursing homes.
