You are my son

There are a handful of scriptures that move me to the core. The account of God The Father speaking at Jesus baptism, recorded in the three synoptic Gospels, is one of them:

After all the people were baptized, Jesus was baptized. As he was praying, the sky opened up and the Holy Spirit, like a dove descending, came down on him. And along with the Spirit, a voice: "You are my Son, chosen and marked by my love, pride of my life." Luke 3:21-22, (The Message)
Being a dad, I know what it feels like to love my son; and I have an idea of how The Father loves His Son. It reminds me that this is what it's all about, God's love. God loves. God is love. The love that I have for my son was created by God.

Do you think God the Father missed Jesus, when he was living on earth those years? Do you think the Father suffered when Jesus suffered?
