When I think about the love of God and how he sees it all and loves us anyway I then look at my husband. He sees it all. ALL. Man, I can’t even put words to what it means that he loves me in spite of myself. Love is never blind. He is still here. Still calls me beautiful and I know he really means it by looking in his eyes.
