You Are Loved

Today I found myself mindlessly humming this tune. 

‘You’re nobody ’til somebody loves you

You’re nobody ’til somebody cares.’

 Originally Dean Martin made it popular; Michael Bublé recently brought it back to life.

My first thought was “My dear husband is gone and nobody loves me anymore.” 

Then I gave my head a shake. I have loving family members, dear friends, and neighbors. Of course, somebody loves me! And what if they didn’t?  I remembered God, who loves every single one of us, even me. Why, He loved us before we were even born! And I said a grateful prayer of thanks.

Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.  This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world so that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. (1 John 4:8-10)

Oh, what great love the Father lavishes on us, that we should be called his children!  (1 John 3:1)
