Today we have been spending with friends as we've out of town for the John Piper sermons ... today there was nothing big to do so we spent the day with our friend's and their adorable kids. For me babies and children are such a wonderful reminder of the beauty of life and that glory and creativity of God. When you are faced with pain (I have been dealing with something going on and I am in a lot of pain this weekend) it is so helpful to be reminded of babies and children - their dependence and trust. That is what God wants of us - our dependence and trust even when we don't understand and when the grief of always being sick is too much to bear. We need to just relax and allow Him to hold and comfort us as if we were a baby in the arms of a loving and strong Daddy.
