As I was putting Ellie in her bed the other night, she fussed and wiggled every time I got up to leave the room. I stroked her hair whispered in her ear. “Don’t worry. I’ll just be in the other room. If you get scared or you need me I’ll come right in.” She settled down next to me and fell fast asleep. I tucked her in one last time and kissed her forehead.
On the way back to our room, I thought our loving Father in Heaven. In my mind, I imagine Him saying something similar to us before we came to this Earth. “Don’t worry, I’ll be close by. If you get scared or need me, just pray, I’ll be right there.” He didn’t intend for us to brave this life alone, He wants to lead us and guide us every step of the way.
P.S. Happy February!!!!!
