Sometimes Busyness Can Wait
0 0

While framing photos of my daughters for our “memory hallway,” both girls were at my feet, inviting me to read books with them on the floor.

Funny how I put pictures in frames, so as to save memories, when the connection my heart is longing to find is in plain sight. Sometimes such opportunities appear like inconveniences because they come at the expense of “productivity.” But when I bend down, wrap my daughters in my arms, smell their hair, kiss their temples and tell them how much their young lives bring me joy, my inevitable reward is the tender look of trust and safety in their eyes. I think the pictures and the laundry can wait.

  • Now this I know: The Lord gives victory to his anointed. He answers him from his heavenly sanctuary with the victorious power of his right hand.
  • My son is always teaching me things about being a good friend. Every month he needs to bring a snack for his class. He loves it and feels so special when it is his choice. He gets to choose a friend to help him pass it out. The first time it was his turn he said to me, "Mommy, I'm going to choose Nicholas because he's never been chosen. I want him to be chosen." What a sweetheart. His has a big heart of compassion and eyes that seek out those he can help. I hope he always keeps this heart.
