Life is Grace

discoveries of grace in my messy and imperfect, but blessed, life

At our wedding dance, I asked the DJ to dedicate the song “Let Me Call You Sweetheart” to my mom. I love this picture from the wedding; every time I look at it, I’m reminded how very, very much I am loved. A mother’s love is an incredible, powerful thing (as you moms out there realize!). I often imagine God’s love for us as something similar, like being cradled gently in my mom’s arms, enveloped by a love so deep and enduring that it’s beyond comprehension, a love that is pure gift.

Just like my mom’s love has always been pure gift.

One thought on “let me call you sweetheart

    Those are such great pictures, Barb. Your close relationship with your mom and her love for you are evident in both of them. We are keeping her, and you, in our prayers.
