“For here you are, standing there, loving me
Whether or not you should.” (Something Good, Maria and Captain Von Trapp)
There are far more famous songs in Sound of Music (an all-time favorite classic movie of mine), but watching this again tonight, and hearing this particular line from Maria, something in my heart stirred. It made me remember the way God loves us –should He love us? Should He not love us, because of our past, because of who or what we were before?
But He loves us, and that is all the truth I know.
