“I think you look great”

The boys were sitting in the back seat of my car.  With the innocence and bluntness that only a 5 year old can speak, Matthew informed me that I don’t have much hair on my head.  In fact, it’s mostly on the back of my head.  “Actually … you’re mostly bald, Daddy.”

I was sarcastically thinking “thanks” when Andy the diplomat interjected: “Daddy… I don’t care about that.  I think you look great.”

I was speechless.  Now the “thanks” I was thinking (and speaking) was not sarcastic.  Isn’t it great that there are people who love us just as we are?    No matter what we look like, no matter what mistakes we have made.

Even more fortunate that we have a Creator who is like that too.
