Last night Eva thoroughly enjoyed her bath. She kicked and splashed like nobody’s business. It was pretty much non-stop. I don’t know why God chose that moment, but while I while I was watching her and feeling my heart overflow with love for her I started to think about why God created us. I was thinking about how that is a question that comes up sometimes and at that particular moment I could really understand the answer that is often given: he wanted to love us.
Why do we want to have children of our own? That is something I contemplated during my pregnancy. I have wanted to have a baby since I was about 12 years old. But why? It is hard. There could be challenges that will completely change your life. They might grow up and hate you. I don’t know about you guys, but I knew a lot of that stuff and wanted to have a baby anyway. I wanted a child to be brought into the love that Peter and I have. And last night I felt like God was letting me in on the reason he created us. Even though we might grow up and tell him we hate Him.
He wanted to give us love anyway.
