God Is In Control
Last Fall Aidan managed to climb over the crib rail and fell with a thud. Other than a nasty bump on the forehead and being a bit freaked from the fall, he was okay. Rather than get a toddler bed which we didn't think he was ready for yet, we decided to get an inexpensive surveillance camera to keep an eye on him. Watching him is now my favorite TV show (and pretty much the only one I have time to watch). At times, he thinks Cindy and I have left him, but we're actually keeping a very close eye on him. Our hearts ache when he cries but we smile when he sits there and babbles or hugs his stuffed animals. Fatherhood has helped me see more of God's heart for us in so many ways. If you watch the news, or if you have been affected by the economic downturn, there could be the tendency to wonder where God is. Maybe you don't get the "warm fuzzies" of His touch as often. Various circumstances can make it seem like He isn't paying attention, but He is always there. He smiles with us, cries with us, sings over us with joy and He loves us beyond what we can comprehend. Trust Him, and seek Him with all your heart.
And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.
