All the time

I can be a woman, but that doesn't make me a supermodel.
I can have long hair, but it doesn't make me pretty.
I can have a great husband, but it doesn't make me a great wife.
I can sleep 8 hours a night, but I don't get any younger.
I can drink milk, but I don't turn into a cow.
I can fly in a plane, but it doesn't make me a pilot.
I can love Massachusetts, but it doesn't mean I can live there.
I can tell people I love them, but it doesn't mean they'll believe me.
I can hug my dogs, but it doesn't mean they understand why.
I can say hi to a stranger, but it doesn't mean they understand my caring nature.
I can love, but it doesn't mean I'll be loved in return.
I can ask God, but it doesn't mean I'll get what I'm hoping for.

We deny him, and God forgives us 77x7.
We reject him, and God loves us the same yesterday, today, and forever.
We don't deserve him, but he calls us his own children if we will only call on his name.
Nations are like dust to him, but he still cares about our sick dog and our house payment.
Thank him.
Serve him.
Love him.
And most importantly, don't forget to do it...all the time.
