"Your ancestor Abraham rejoiced hat he would see my day; he saw it and was glad." Then the Jews said to him, "You are not yet fifty years old, and have you seen Abraham?"

Even before he created anything, the three Persons loved each other. They fellowshipped as a community, Since Jesus is fully human and fully God, then God can empathize with us. It's comforting to know God "weeps with those who weep"
