I Choose You
I don’t remember exactly when it began, but fairly often I would tell each of my children that if you put all the children on the whole earth in a line, I would choose my kids every time. I wanted them to know that no matter what happened, they could count on me. I would always love them and they could never do anything to cause me to stop loving them.
As parents, when we show our children unconditional love, they learn what it is to be loved. They learn what it means to be part of a family. By loving them we demonstrate God’s love to them.
