Five Minute Friday - Hard Love

Five Minute Friday.  You know the drill.  Type for 5 minutes.  No editing.  Publish and link back to The Gypsy Mama.
Today's prompt:  Hard Love

Dear Jesus,

Thank You for loving me when I didn't care what You thought, when I didn't obey You and didn't even want to, when I thought I knew best.  Thank You for taking the fall for me when I didn't appreciate it.  Thank you for dying on cross in my place, even if I would have spit in Your face.  Thank you for wooing and pursuing me when I was at my worst.  Thank You for continuing to love me, even when my worst comes out still.
But God demonstrates His own love for us in this:  While we were yet sinner's, Christ died for us.

Thank You, Lord.

Blessings to you,

Thank you for your prayer, beautiful words. How lovely it is to thank him for what He has done - given us love, given us life, given us Himself. Friday is here but Sunday is coming. Happy Easter. Nics
