|Daddy is causing this smile!|
She does not do this for her mommy however. She loves mommy and I get the smiles and coos and lovings just like a mommy should from her baby. But compared to the smiles and coos that her daddy receives? You would think that mommy was dirt. Her face lights up like a blinking beacon to her daddy. None of my other children did this in this extreme to either one of us before Emily came along.
Today I was holding my little sweetheart (of course she's still my sweetheart!) and I got a giant huge smile from her and we were giggling and playing and having fun together. And I was thinking to myself how precious it is that Emily looks to her daddy in that way. I may be
slightly, a little, okay a LOT jealous of their relationship but I'm glad they have it.
I was contemplating their relationship and that familiar still small voice whispered to me and said
"I wish you would desire such a relationship with ME as you do with your daughter."
|This daddy loves his little girl!|
Then it was gone. But the words are forever burned into my heart. Even as I write this, my tears are flowing because I know these are true:
God wants me to look at HIM with adoration.
God wants me to forget all of my cares and concerns when I look to HIM.
God wants me to reach for HIM when I want to play.
God wants me to be overjoyed when HE does something amazing.
God wants me to spend time with HIM.
Because He feels that same way about me.
Have you spent time with your "Daddy" today? He wants to spend time with you!
In HIS Grip,
