Tip-toeing into the room, I watch as the tiny chest rises and falls
In perfect rhythm, a breath; signs that life is sweet…
This one is mine…
Eyes closed in sleep…
Face pure and innocent, no cares, no worries, a part of me lying there
A sign that life is complete…
What will you do my little one? What journeys will you seek?
I bend and tenderly kiss the cheek…
Of this child wandering in dreamland who does he/she meet?
My love goes beyond the stars, affection limitless, tremendous, endless…
On loan for a millisecond, then gone, time does not stand still…
Sleep, little one, sleep…
Just as we love our children and want the best for them, our loving heavenly father feels the same way about us.
Sometimes when we do not hear him speaking, or we don’t feel him near. It’s not that he has left us; for he said, he never would…he is just tip-toeing into our room and watching us sleep. Tears of joy filling his eyes, his heart so full of love for us, that he is speechless.
Rest, little one, rest! ~Papa

And they said, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and your household.” Acts 16:31
I am my beloved’s, And my beloved is mine. He feeds his flock among the lilies. Song of Solomon 6:3 New King James Version (NKJV)
“And as for me, this is my covenant with them,” says the Lord: “My Spirit that is upon you, and my words that I have put in your mouth, shall not depart out of your mouth, or out of the mouth of your offspring, or out of the mouth of your children’s offspring,” says the Lord, “from this time forth and forevermore.” Isaiah 59:21
Praise the Lord! Blessed is the man who fears the Lord, who greatly delights in his commandments! His offspring will be mighty in the land; the generation of the upright will be blessed. Psalm 112:1-2
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. Proverbs 3:5-6
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.Romans 15:13
Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends.2 Corinthians 13
I’d like to recommend a book to you, it’s called, The Singing God by, Sam Storms. This book is amazing. Sam will open your eyes to the wonderment of God’s love and how he sings over his children. It has blessed me beyond words. You will love it!
I love the Lord Jesus Christ and am passionate about writing. I hope you enjoy the blog and come to visit often.
Then the Lord answered me and said:
“Write the vision
And make it plain on tablets,
That he may run who reads it.
For the vision is yet for an appointed time;
But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie.
Though it tarries, wait for it;
Because it will surely come,
It will not tarry.
“Behold the proud,
His soul is not upright in him;
But the just shall live by his faith. Habakkuk 2: 2-4
