A long “to do” list as usual.
A sick baby girl needing her momma.
The choice: settle into the moment and cherish the sweet cuddles with my vulnerable, sad daughter or hold her and watch the clock hoping she’ll fall asleep any moment so I can accomplish a few things before bed.
Thankfully, I chose option A. As I hummed old hymns and rocked my baby girl until her heavy eyes closed and her breathing soothed into the slow easy breaths of a peaceful deep sleep, I was reminded of my heavenly father.
He is not bound by time. The abundance of love and comfort he is able to give me knows no limits.
MATTHEW 7:11 (NIV)
If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!
