More than tongue can tell

When I was a child my mom would offen tell me and my brother that "I love you more than tongue can tell". When I was a kid I thought it was really nice, but I'm pretty sure I never really grasped what she was trying to tell me. Last night while I was tucking my own children in bed it just sort of struck me. I was overwhelmed by the love I had for each of my children. I struggle to express my love for not just my children, but my wife as well. I feel it deeply. It moves me. It affects me, but I just cannot adequetly express it to them. At times I try and make it up with tell them "I love you" often, and over and over. Sometimes to the point my beloved will tell me, "thanks, I got it". :) I just pray that they feel it too. That's all I have for today. God bless... Verse for today: 1 Corinthians 13:1-7 esv If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing. Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

That reminded me of the song, "He Owns the Cattle on a Thousand Hills". It has a verse "Wonderful riches, more than tongue can tell".

Thanks for the thought provoking posts.................Bob
