That Baby Face

Please tell me that I am not the only parent who sees their child’s crying face and is immediately taken back to that moment in the delivery room.

A precious face, all wrinkled, eyes squinting.

The redness… and white pasty skin… and open mouth.

The crazy resemblance of mommy and daddy combined into one little life.

Funny how the crying face can send your mind swirling back to one moment in time.

I’m back home from the James Bible study today.(Beth Moore) What a picture she painted of how God uses anguish and joy in our lives. I’m not even going to attempt to summarize her one hour study in a pithy paragraph. Suffice it to say that this video today- a game changer!

I plan to do just that tonight. And watch it again. Yep, it was that good.

But the next time your sweet babies look at you through tears and your heart swells with happiness and sorrow intertwined, think about how much God loves us.

And how He LONGS to envelop us in His arms.

Just like you with your own precious babies.

When was the last time you allowed yourself to be wrapped in His love?
