Her tiny hand tugs on my mine as I am working and pulls me into the family room. She walks over to the chair with all three of her special blankets and beckons me to sit. We settle into the recliner, my feet on the footstool, hers on the backrest. We smile into each other's eyes. She giggles through "This Little Piggy" and "Where is Baby's Belly Button?" We swap kisses. We enjoy the silence just looking at each other. We memorize faces. We know each other.
She doesn't doubt that I love her.
She doesn't wonder if I should be working instead of spending time with her.
She doesn't worry about the correction she received earlier for climbing up on the table . . . again.
She just soaks up the love as we sit together. She's as sure as can be that I am hers and that she was created for me.
"Change and become like little children . . . " Matthew 18:3
"Now I know in part; then I shall know fully even as I am fully known."
1 Corinthians 13:12
Today and each day, may you sit with God, Abba Father, with the awareness that you are fully known and fully loved by Him.
Know and be known.
