The heart of the Father

To gather His children in His arms

To bring them home

To feed them

To protect them

To bless them

To talk to them and with them

To watch them grow

To give them responsibility

To teach them

To watch them develop character

To see His nature in them

His nature of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness

Faithfulness, humility and self-control

To watch them have children, His grandchildren

To watch them train their children in His ways

To have them dwell in His house

In His house are many mansions and rooms

Enough room for everyone!

To watch His family grow

To watch them learn the one thing that He wanted them to learn

To see them learn to love

Love Him with all their heart

To see them love others as they love themselves
