Finding Love in my Son

May 27, 2009

IMG_9289Last night, for the first time, John Samuel fell asleep on my chest. Typically, I nurse him before his bedtime and he falls asleep that way. But last night was so special. I rocked him while he was still awake, sucking on his green soothie. His big brown eyes just stared into mine. It was a moment for just the two of us- Mommy and son. He was calm and so content. Then eventually, his eyes just closed.

My eyes welled up with tears because of the joy that lie in my arms. And to think that God loves us the way a mother and father loves their own child. The love is so deep and profound that it’s difficult to handle.

God is our Abba father who tenderly guides and protects us in his arms. His love is so wide and so rich. I am just now starting to get a glimpse of that love through my son. I truly can’t imagine life without him and I’m so thankful for the gift of motherhood and how it reminds me so much of Christ’s love.

    Loved your post! My two children are now ages 6 and 12 and it only seemed like yesterday that Hollye and I were able to enjoy some of those special moments! Now we are into baseball, basketball, special outings, and just creating memories. Have fun and enjoy every moment!

    Thank you Tracey. I know that only in a few more years we’ll be taking John to baseball games too! How do you slow it down again?
