Monday comes but once a week

What the heck does that title mean?

Anyway, it's time to count the ways that God shows His great and merciful love for us.
Yesterday Clayton asked me about a line in a hymn called "The Love of Christ is Rich and Free".
"Mom," he asked, "what does it mean, 'He'll love His own to endless day'?"
I explained that when the new heaven and the new earth come, we will have Jesus for our light and will no longer need the sun and moon.  We'll have endless day.
"It doesn't mean He'll love us til then and then stop.  It means He'll love us THROUGH until that time.  He'll go on loving us til we get to the endless day, and then He'll be our Light forever."

I'm so grateful for that promise.  That hymn always makes me weep for the comfort of the promise.
