Rocking our babies

I was reading on another blog this morning and getting an update from a family who is over in China getting their baby girl. She is the one of the authors of Five in a Row, the curriculum that we're using. Go read this post to see a beautiful picture of how Christ meets our needs when we come to Him.

As Becky Jane's writing about Laney beginning to rock herself to sleep, I couldn't help but think of how often I try to rock myself to sleep, comfort myself or meet my own needs in all sorts of ways. Christ is waiting with open arms for me to run to Him so He can quiet my restless heart, comfort me, fill up my dry soul with living water. "No more rocking yourself to sleep, Baby Girl!" Becky says. Jesus is saying that same thing to you and me...

I love the insights I'm seeing into your heart, and the wisdom you're sharing on your blog these days....It's not that it hasn't always been there, but you're expressing it more, and I have a lot to learn from you! I praise God for the woman and the mom you are!

Thanks for sharing your thought. I would've never made that connection when I read BJ's blog...I was too teary eyed! Then, when I read what you had to say...let's just say I was a big blubbering mess!

Thanks :) ami*
