Living Lessons: Priceless Thoughts
I love Micah's energy as he's bouncing up and down on his crib mattress. I love how he plays the bashful game and hides his face sometimes when he sees me. I love how he tugs on my pant legs wanting to be held high so he can see the world. I love his blue eyes and blond hair which are signature marks the he is our child. I love teaching him new things like how to wave and say "Hi". I love how strong and healthy he is as we put on his 24month clothes at only 9 months of age. I love how he frequently listens when I tell him "No" pulling back his hand from forbidden objects.
I love the beautiful baby he was. I love the budding toddler that he is. I love man that he will one day become.
I don't have to think long and hard to enjoy priceless thoughts about any of my children. They come easy to a dad here on earth. I'll wager they come even easier to our Father in heaven.
Read this passage from Psalm 139:17-18a (NIrV) with a new purpose today. "God, your thoughts about me are priceless. No one can possibly add them all up. If I could count them, they would be more than the grains of sand." As many priceless thoughts as I have about my children, your Father in heaven has a million times more about you.
Take comfort in knowing you do have a father who loves you, knows you, and cares for you today.
