The day has drawn to a close with the sun setting and the moon hanging high in the sky watching our every move. We’ve danced under that very moon tonight, laughing, twirling with our heads thrown back, and enjoying the moment. As we made our way inside, you, yawning and stretching, and me following right behind, you crawl into bed awaiting me to come shortly thereafter to tuck you in. Snug as a bug in a rug. My little lady bug.
I stroke your hair and kiss your cheek softly as I whisper, “I love you,” in your ear. Those three small words … who knew they could have such feelings and emotions behind them … but a mother knows. From the moment I found out I was pregnant with you, I was in love … every fiber of my being was so in love with you, dear child of mine. And today, there are so many feelings and emotions behind those three little words. They are so tiny, and yet so powerful, just like you.
And I sit with you a moment longer, soaking in all of your beauty and wonder … this little child of mine.
Just as I whisper my words of love to you, God does also to each and every one of us. It’s the sweet whispers of the wind blowing through our hair, the sunlight caressing our skin, the birds singing their melody for all the world to hear … God’s hands are in all things, and He is whispering from His lips to our hearts His love for us all. Do you hear Him calling to you?
