you hung the moon

A three-year-old can’t draw very well, but that never slows him down. He grabs a crayon and runs it across the paper a few times with gusto, and then he switches crayons and does it a few more times. He’s making a picture for his dad. He knows that his dad will take it to work and hang it on the wall near his desk. It’s really easy to please somebody who thinks you hung the moon.

“The great distinctive of the love of . . . God is that there are no strings attached. . . .” David Benner

“Cheerfully pleasing God is the main thing, and that is what we aim to do. . . .” 2 Corinthians 5:9
