Well hello there! Won't you join me for a cup of tea? (or coffee if that's more to your liking...) I was just getting ready to start my day, but now that you're here, I would certainly welcome the chance for a chat!
As I sit here in our living room, listening to the repetitive notes of "Old McDonald" and "Twinkle Twinkle" drifting from the swing my daughter is now being entertained in....I can't help noticing how beautiful her smile is as she excitedly looks around at her surroundings. Everything is so new to her....and even though she has no idea what most things around her are, or what they're called, or what the day has in store for her....she's content because her "Mummy" is sitting on the floor next to her, and she has her bottle of milk. That's all she needs right now. And she's perfectly at peace.
So watching her, I remind myself of that well-known Bible verse from Matthew 19:14 "Let the little children come to me..." In all their innocence and complete trust, "let the little children come to me." Be happy in the little things. In the simple things. Understand that it's okay if we don't know what's around the next bend. God has everything all planned out for us. And do you realize something? All He asks us to do is simply offer all our worries, cares, and concerns to Him! Be as "little children", and He will take care of the rest. Well, if we can manage that, than we are already well on our way toward a peaceful day!
Don't you already feel more confident in starting your day? I do.
So thank you, Friend, for this lovely chance to chat.
