Little Boys.

Monday, January 12, 2015

What is it about little boys?  Someone once whispered to me that you will love your girls fiercely, but your little boy will capture your heart in an entirely different way.  It wasn't that I didn't believe her, but I just couldn't fathom.  Well, winds up she was so, so right. 
This little boy has wriggled his way into this momma's heart and dug his heels in deep.  Seems a smidge strange, but he makes me want to be better.  Kids have a funny way of doing that, right?  They are quick to point out your imperfections and even quicker to love you anyways.  They love so well.  What an outrageous and plain frightening privilege we have to raise these loving kiddos of ours.  Gosh, I need to pray for an extra dose of love, patience... all those things. Every single day.  Read this today and it penetrated my heart something deep.

Love God, your God, with your whole heart: love him with all that’s in you, love him with all you’ve got! Write these commandments that I’ve given you today on your hearts. Get them inside of you and then get them inside your children. Talk about them wherever you are, sitting at home or walking in the street; talk about them from the time you get up in the morning to when you fall into bed at night. Tie them on your hands and foreheads as a reminder; inscribe them on the doorposts of your homes and on your city gates.

-Deuteronomy 6:5-9, The Message.
Get them inside your children.  Sounds so easy and yet, in those sheer madness moments, can seem like an incredible task.  Little boy, thanks for stomping all over this momma's heart and in your own little ten week old way, encouraging me to love with my whole, whole heart.
