God Loves You

There are stories that find their way into your heart and stay there forever. This is one that
found its way into mine. There was once an elderly woman who lived in a violent, drug-ravaged,
crumbling neighborhood in an old city. Her children had died before her. Time had left its mark
on her too. She was no longer pretty in the eyes of the world. She had become wrinkled,
stooped, thin and hollow-eyed. Her body was now half crippled with arthritis.
Still, this little old lady continually brought joy to the community around her. Everyone called
her "Granny" and she was a loving Grandmother to all. As she moved slowly down the street she
would sing hymns and share smiles. She had a kind word for everyone. She gave her gentle
laughter as a free gift to all. She offered encouragement, said prayers for, and brought hope to
the disheartened. She went about doing good every chance she could. No one who met her left
without their heart feeling lighter and their smile shining brighter. Her serenity and tranquility
remained a mystery to the neighborhood, though. No one could figure out how someone who
had lost and suffered so much could live so beautifully.
One day a curious little girl ran up to the tiny old woman shuffling along with her walker and
called out to her. "How do you do it Granny?", she asked. "How do you love so freely? How do
you live so happily? How do you give so much to all of us everyday?" Granny just smiled at her
and said, "Because God loves me child! Because He loves me, I love Him and you and
What a glorious truth she shared. There is no better reason to live and love than that. That is
why this story will forever have a home in my heart. May you too make your life a beautiful gift
of love, just because "God Loves You!"
