A Gratituesday Post at NanaHood.com:    

Never Ending Love

Ray Charles, Patty Loveless and the Osmonds have something in common. They all recorded a song called ďNever Ending Song of Love.Ē Just in case you donít remember it here are the words to the first verse.

Iíve got a never-ending love for you
From now on thatís all I want to do
From the first time we met I knew
Iíd have a never-ending love for you

Regardless of how you feel about the song (and I donít particularly care for it) the premise of having something that never ends is pretty impressive (even if the song isnít). I had heard this song many times over the years but it had faded from my memory (thankfully) until recently. My granddaughter goes to church with me when she visits and a few weeks ago a couple that sits across the aisle from us brought Abby a gift.

Guess what the bear sings?  Thatís right. The song that never endsÖno wait Iím confused, itís a Never Ending Love Song. Anyway, the bear sings it over and over and Abby loves it. Murphy, our Cocker Spaniel hates it and howls until itís turned off, which makes for an interesting combination of noise/headache.

This morning I was reading in Ephesians when I came across the following verses; ďAnd may you have the power to understand, as all Godís people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love really is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is so great you will never fully understand it. Then you will be filled with the fullness of life and power that comes from God.Ē (Eph 3: 18-19)

These verses reminded me that God loves us in a way that we as mere mortals cannot comprehend. He is with us from the beginning of our lives (You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my motherís womb. Psalms 139:13) to the very end (Even when I walk through the dark valley of death, I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me. Your rod and your staff protect and comfort me. Psalm 23:4)

And after thatÖeternity. (And this is what God has testified: He has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 1 John 5:11)

Now thatís the kind of never ending love I want to hear about, put my faith in and give thanks for! How about you?
