My sense of loss, related to the children of my heart. has given me a glimpse into the heart of God the Father.
Reality says I have 6 children; isn't that enough?
Nope. I mourn the ones I "lost"; the ones that might have been.
That part of us (as a collective society) that thinks that a mom should/will forget the one(s) she lost, is cr@p.
She could have dozens of kids, but will never forget the one(s) she lost.
How much more, then, is God the Father grieving over the ones He has "lost". He has a gazillion children, but does He ever, ever, ever forget the one(s) He lost?
