I love going home to visit. This time, it was just me there with my mom and dad. I have to admit, we spent a lot of time eating, talking and watching TV. One of the mornings, we enjoyed eating breakfast at Steak & Shake. A trip there is really fun for them, because they've gotten to know the waitresses--who bring them their "regular" as soon as they spot them. They also call them by name. :)
There's something really cool about being known that way. When someone knows your name, and your likes and dislikes. Good friends and family are that way. They know our strengths and weaknesses. And they love us anyway.
But God knows us even better, inside and out, our thoughts, our hopes, our hurts. And God loves us beyond measure. Sometimes, it's hard to believe that. But what joy to rest in the fact.
Who's someone in your life who knows you well and loves you?
