a thorough loving

  I had a really nice time this morning waking up my son – he was very snuggly & wanted to share a secret.  When I told him that I was listening, he said, “you first – you share a secret first & then I’ll tell you my secret.”  So I paused for a minute to think about what level of secret to share (secret ingredient in my pecan pie or a secret pain in my heart).  I decided to go with the deep option & shared something with him that is super close to my heart.  He assured me that my secret is safe with him.  After this, he also shared a deep secret with me & we had a very nice deep conversation.

This interaction has caused me to think about my relationship w God – I think He wants to more thoroughly love us by coming into the secrets we keep in our lives.  Indeed, when my son shared his secret with me, I felt lots closer to him.  With this experience, I’m even more convinced that God wants to be closer to us & one way that we cooperate with His desires is to be more vulnerable & transparent with Him.  We must know that He never rejects us – even in our worst state & when we are wholly deplorable to ourselves.  You are highly treasured & deeply valuable to your Creator

Sarah,
What beautiful thoughts. As my boys have grown, I only wish I had held on to those moments a little longer. Priceless memories, and how much greater to be held with our Savoir.

Thank you so much for sharing with us.
