Sometimes love cannot be explained.

I often tell her she's beautiful (and I'll keep doing so until she believes me). She comes back with, "I don't know why you say that."

I just love her, that's why. And to me, she's so beautiful.

I react to my husband the same way she does to me. He says he loves me and I say, "But why?"

He starts with a few reasons and gets frustrated when I still don't get it. Finally he sighs and gets defensive saying, "I don't know. I can't explain it. I just do. Why do I have to have a reason?"

And there it is. Love is beyond explanation. And why shouldn't it be? The Ultimate Lover is our example. God Almighty defies all reason to love us.

And yet He does.
