God sees us as His babies too.
I was mildly amused to hear Duchess singing, “Jesus Loves Me” from the backseat of the car. I joined in, doing the voices, “They are weak, but He is strong” going from high pitched squeaky to deep low strong man….she loved it…I loved it….I have sang that little ditty with 3 children now….. I get why Jesus wanted us to approach Him like children. Never understanding why He’d want those snot nosed little toddlers, wibbly and wobbly as they make their way toward him….It was the picture of innocence, trust and something else He wanted us to envision….The Parent/Child relationship…. Sigh…I remember those days well.
Having a daughter 26 a son 9, and a baby girl who will be 3 qualifies me to write on the entire spectrum of parental/mommy issues. I can’t really address myself as a mommy when referring to all things Princess, and frankly Sweetness is fast approaching the age where “mommy” is no longer going to be appropriate for him either. Soon he’ll be given a cell phone, with the mandate to text me every hour on the hour….or if I text him…to text me back ASAP. At my age, we no longer call The Father, DADDY either….DADDY is Baby Christian….we’re adults…don’t treat us like we still live at home….. Father….we’re busy….we’ll call you when we can!
I wonder what a text Message from God would look like? I mean HE knows how we are. He doesn’t mandate for us to keep in touch so He can be in control. We should KNOW how He feels when we don’t bother to return a text to Him. Ironic, that I’ll text Princess three times in three days, then threaten to go to Terre Haute if she doesn’t let me know she’s alive, but I won’t even bother, not one time, to get with Him, if He calls me. Like the singing toddler from the back seat, He just wants to do the voices with us and laugh….He wants a Parent/Child relationship. As parents we should get that. Darn it….I get it. Okay, gotta go. I have a lot to do today, and in addition to all that, I have to call my Dad later. Ya know, He worries…..Be Blessed. Remember you set the Tone, you ARE the Example. BE KIND to each other. Show GRACE and MERCY to all those who cross your path today. With your Daily Affirmations complete, enjoy your Monday.
