He Loves Me, So

I dropped him off to head out to camp, but there were a lot of people around, so it had to be just a quick, Love ya. See ya tomorrow.

My phone rang an hour later.

That wasn’t a very good goodbye, he said.

No, it wasn’t.

I love you, he said, nice ‘n slow.

Much better.

Brushing my teeth before bed, I thought of John 3:16. “For God so loved the world…”

Quantity: So.

God’s not a Love ya quick and off he goes.
