You're the Best Ever

My older two daughters, Kaylee and Megan, often respond with the phrase, “You’re the best mom ever!” when they receive a gift from me or when I do something extra special for them. My youngest daughter, Kendall, has picked up the phrase now as well. She uses it much more freely.
I help her blow her nose – you’re the best mom ever.
I cut her sandwich in half – you’re the best mom ever.
I cannot lie, I love hearing it! I always respond with “You’re the best Kendall ever.”
However, I don’t do the things for my girls because I am expecting them to say thank you. Like all the moms here today, I give because I love my children.
I believe our Heavenly Parent feels the same way. God blesses us in big and special ways like new jobs, a healthy baby, and a supportive family. God blesses us in small, everyday ways as well. All these blessings are given because He loves us. But, just like I enjoy hearing my girls’ expressions of gratitude, I am sure God would enjoy hearing the same from us.
God gave us a beautiful earth to live on – you’re the best God ever. I am going to use resources wisely.
God blessed us with a wonderful church home to worship in – you’re the best God ever. I am going to support my congregation financially to help maintain the church.
God blessed us with wonderful friends and family – you’re the best God ever. I am going to share the Good News and pray for them.
And you know what? Just like my response to my girls, God believes YOU are the best ever too.
