Let It Be Enough!

"How much do you love me?" is a plaintive human query. When I was small, my mother and I must have asked each other often, for our standard answer, "More'n tongue can tell," became an accepted and familiar phrase. Other families have other answers —answers given with heartfelt sincerity in the honest assumption that the measure of love is indeed beyond words. Yet, how many of us have actually faced this as the vital question that it is?

Although we intimate that our love is more than we can express, is it enough? Do we, if parents, love enough to say "God's child" instead of "my child"? Do we love enough to know that though we will do all we can for that child, he will be safe with or without us, because God, omnipotence, is taking care of him? Can we see him as perfect because he is, in truth, the reflection of God, rather than because his human endearments have closed our eyes to any possible failings? Can we consistently remember that "mother" and "father" are but human appellations, and that God is the only real Parent, the sole creator?
