Mariah: I love you bigger than an elephant. I love you cuter than a little puppy. I love you taller than the tallest mountain. I love you more green than spring grass. And I love you whiter than the snow. Now do you know how much I love you?

Mommy: Oh, yes! Do you know how much I love you?

Mariah: No.

Mommy: I love you faster than a galloping horse. I love you blue-er than your eyes. I love you more tumbly than when you do cartwheels. I love you more beautiful than sunrises, sunsets and rainbows. I love you squishier than our rubber animals. Now do you know how much I love you?

Mariah: Yes!

Mommy: Do you know how much Jesus loves you?

Mariah: No.

Mommy: This is how much Jesus loves you: He says, “I love you higher than the sky and as deep as the sea. I love you longer than the longest car ride you have ever been on! I love you with love wider than the ocean (extend your arms as though your hands are nailed to a cross). I love you so much that I died on the cross so that you could be My child.” Now do you know how much Jesus loves you?

Mariah: Yes! He loves me a lot!
