Linking up with Lisa Jo again this week to participate in Five Minute Friday. I love this because it is just a commitment of five minutes of unedited writing….we can all do that can’t we?? So if you haven’t started this series yet…today’s the day!
Today’s word is BELOVED – ready, set go –
I will be honest – I almost didn’t post this morning. It was a rough night with our sick little girl and I didn’t sleep much.
When I finally got up I was feeling a little crabby….well a lot crabby! 😉
But i started thinking about the word Beloved for today and what it means….
And I think that my night, laying next to my only daughter while she tossed and turned, coughed and cried, envelops what being beloved is.
My girl is dearly loved…and sometimes as parents we have to show them that love in sacrificial ways. Even if it means we are tired and crabby in the morning! But she is worth it….they all are!
So while I am weary this morning, I know that she was taken care of.
And I know that God loves me in that same sacrificial way….at times I am sure He grows weary of my tossing and turning about….but He is right there by my side, through the dark….always reminding me that I am His.
