No matter what you do

Couldn't figure out how to rotate this...
Must share this with you blog friends... I'm writing it in green because Maggie's favorite color is green
What a wonderful little girl we have...
Today she said she wrote a song (bear in mind she's only 3)
It goes " No matter what you do, no matter what you do"
She came and woke me up singing it. She said "i write songs like you mama"
It's a catchy tune. She kept singing it and I asked her-- what is it about? AND she said-- "it means you're happy and thankful for God and it makes you happy when you're sad."
WOW she already knows, God her father loves her "no matter what you do." A simple, refreshing child's faith. No complications. She knows she's loved and that alone is making her kind and sweet. There's no other foundation so strong and sure. We must be doing some things right, by God's grace.
Not to analyze the simplicity...but she gets what some of us just can't get or accept-- God couldn't possibly love me if he really knew me..... but he does
"... God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." Romans 5:8
I happen to know that she knows that it does matter if one is truthful or obedient or kind.... that's not what she was singing about. She was singing about God's unconditional love, even when we fail, hurt or mess up, His love doesn't go away ever--how deep and wide it is....
THANK YOU JESUS for Maggie!!!
