I remember gently lifting her face, bringing her eyes to see my own. Her cheeks were tear-stained and there were so many feelings reflected in her eyes. It was so important for her to see the love reflected in my eyes as we discussed what had happened, and how we could both make improvements for next time this issue came back up.
Parenting is such a beautiful reminder of the love and admiration our heavenly Father has for us, isn’t it? The Lord is full of love for us, and His correction of us is often so gentle as He tenderly shepherds our heart to come more in line with Him.
Linda’s post this week reminded me of just how thankful I am that the Lord is the lifter of our heads. I appreciate the Scriptures she has woven through her post, and the encouragement she offers through her post.
I’d encourage you to take a few moments to read Linda’s post and remember just how gracious the Lord is to us. You’ll appreciate the prayer the Linda includes in her post as well!
