“My First Love”
When growing up, Erin desperately wanted to be a nun because she heard nuns were “married to God.” Deep in her heart, there was a longing she couldn’t understand until she was much older. Very soon, however, Erin changed her mind the instant she discovered nuns had no children of their own.
Erin absolutely loved babies. She loved to make them laugh, to see them smile and giggle when she crawled after them across the floor. Erin played with baby dolls long after she was considered too old to play with dolls. Her favorite game was pretending her baby dolls were all her own babies. Did you know that God said, "Children are a gift from God... a reward!" Erin not only loved babies but she loved gifts and rewards, don’t you?!
Yet, as much as she loved babies and wanted to have a house full of her own children, Erin still had this deep-down longing to feel closer to God. Her love for Him began the day she discovered He wanted to be her Best Friend.
