I Love You Like Crazy Cakes

I love you with a restless kind of love.


I lead you with cords of human kindness, I tie you with knots of love.


I wait each morning to meet you right where you are.


My love is more than enough to satisfy you.


I will transform your brokenness into beauty.


I died for you.  


I love you like crazy cakes.

I am learning more each day about the power of God's love.


This book has become one of Lily's favorites. I will often find her sitting with this book in hand reading it to herself and studying each colorful picture. Even after 11 months, I can hardly read it without tearing up.

"Once upon a time in China there was a baby girl who lived in a big room with lots of other babies. The girls had nannies to take care of them, but each was missing something-a mother."

"Far away across the ocean was a woman who also had many friends, but she was missing something too, a baby. That woman was me."

"When you looked at me with those big brown eyes, I knew we belonged together."

"I held you tightly, kissed you softly, and cried. The tears were for your Chinese mother, who could not keep you. I wanted her to know that we would always remember her. And I hoped somehow she knew you were safe and happy in the world."

  
In LOVE God adopted us as HIS children and He longs to hold us tightly if we choose to let go.


He loves you like crazy cakes...there is no greater love than this.

I like to get up early to go out and breathe fresh air. I feel that it is good for health and a good habit
