An Avalanche of Love?

"How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!"
My understanding of the word "lavish" is what you would associate with an "avalanche". Can you imagine an avalanche of love? Heaps and heaps of love? So much love it's almost crushing? I can only touch the surface of understanding as I know that is how Ben loves me....But an incredible amount of love?
He loves us that much! That gives me comfort...puts a huge smile on my face...warms my heart...and gives me the umph! I need to keep going...HE LOVES ME!
Jesus loves me, this I know
For the Bible tells me so.
Little ones to Him belong,
They are weak but He is strong.
Yes, Jesus loves me.
Yes, Jesus loves me.
Yes, Jesus loves me.
The Bible tells me so!
