I am so grateful...

I am so grateful.

I am so grateful for kind neighbors:

- A girl of 10 who came over to play today and took my three-year-old girl outside to play together. She held her hand crossing the street and kept her arms protectively near the little one as they played. It was beautiful. My three-year-old came home ten feet tall.

- A woman who left a bag of candy and note on the doorstep for this children of this house. The note read, "Thanks! To the wonderful kids that always say hello to me." I will never throw that note away. (moms need encouragement some days, you know!!)

- A friend who came over to play and ended up watching all the kids alone because I had to go to the doctor suddenly. Then she took them out so that I could rest when I came back.

- My brother, who is giving me such gifts from his heart.

I am so grateful.

Security

Security

If I put myself in Christ's lap,
and my child puts herself in my lap,

then my child is in Christ's lap...

don't you see?

But if I neglect to rest
upon Christ's beating breast,

then the lap my child rests in

is empty me...
