I am sitting here with my one-year old son sleeping in my lap. It is a feeling of complete happiness within me. This little human being, God own masterpiece, is given ME to take care of. It is a tremendous responsibility and the rewards are amazing.
As he is sleeping safe and sound close to me, I study his features. His eyes blinking underneath his eyelids, he is dreaming. His mouth, I think he has got mine. His hands with tiny fingers lay calm and still against my chest .I listen to his breath, it is so familiar to me. He is someone I want to give all good things to.. It is so clever of our Creator to equip us mothers with these protective and admiringly feelings towards our children, to enable us to bring them up with LOVE, patience, understanding and respect.
The thing that strikes me as I look at my son, is that God himself feels this way for US. We have a heavenly Father who loves US, even more so. He wants all good things for us and He knows that we have to follow His path, to be able to reach what he has prepared for us. Thinking of this, makes me want to do HIS will. I want to make Him happy. I want to let HIS light shine through me, every day, in all that I do. May the Lord help me to strenghten me when I am weak, to enable me to be who He wants me to be.
I love Him.
