Away from Home

My son was spending his first Christmas away from home, serving in the military.  He sounded so lonely when he called.  I felt sad for him, and I was lonely for him too.  More than anything, I wanted to go to be with him.  It occurred to me that God loves me like that.  He wants to be with me even more than I want to be with my children.  God wanted me to know Him, and wanted it so much He came to earth to be a human like me.  He wanted me to be able to relate to Him.  In a moment, these thoughts of love and longing made Christmas more real to me than ever before.
