Running to Stand Still Just another day in the life….

I just laid Irelynd down a little while ago for her afternoon nap. When she gets tired, she always starts sucking on her bottom lip and hanging onto the neck of my shirt. These are my favorite times of the day. Not because she is sleeping and I can get a lot accomplished (although I’m not complaining about some free time), but because I love how much I feel she needs me, and wants to be held tight. It’s amazing how every petty care, and worry, seems to vanish from my mind whenever I’m holding her close. I am also struck with the realization of what an awesome responsibility I hold in my arms. I realize that there is nothing more important than teaching Irelynd about God’s love for her. As much as I love her, I know that Jesus’ love for her is unimaginable and unfailing. I pray daily that she will understand and accept this love at an early age

Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.-Proverbs 22:6-
