Day 30: One Birth Day


One year ago today

a NEW LIFE was welcomed into our lives.

A NEW LIFE who

GOD CREATED

for this specific time.

Our grandson,

who is so full of life

who is so full of joy

that he can't contain it.

He crawls along the floor

with a huge smile on his face

with no complaints

as he chases his big sister.

Oh I bet he can't wait until he can walk

so that he can run,

but in the meantime

he WAITS PATIENTLY

and

WATCHES EXPECTANTLY

embracing every moment

as if it is his only moment.

Oh what he teaches me

as I crawl through life

when I am WAITING for things to happen,

yet not PATIENTLY.

Oh what he teaches me

when I crawl through life when I am not

WATCHING EXPECTANTLY in hope.

The innocence of a child

who is in the moment

whether hungry or well fed.

I thank you

HUDSON TAYLOR

for teaching me so much

in only

ONE YEAR

to embrace every moment

whether I am crawling or running

as I

"Wait for & confidently expect the LORD; Be strong & let your heart take courage;

Yes, wait for & confidently expect the LORD" (Psalm 27:14).

Today,

Tomorrow,

&

the

Days after that

are all worth celebrating

LIFE

like a

ONE YEAR OLD

because

we all had the opportunity

to be a

ONE YEAR OLD

and no matter our age

we are still

HIS CHILD~

"See what great love the FATHER has lavished on us, that we should be called children of GOD!"

(I John 3:1)

So let's start

LIVING LIKE ONE~

WAITING PATIENTLY

&

WATCHING EXPECTANTLY

because that is

"THE WAY I WAS MADE" (listen to the song below)
