A Fathers Love

Looking into the eyes of my newborn baby, my heart leaped with joy. So precious. So small.

You know; when they are so cute you just want to cover them with a thousand kisses. Ooooh they are so cute! You can't help but squeeze them and shower them with love.

You here a faint cry from the other room, you rush in and pick up your prize, your joy. As you pull the child close to your heart, the crying stops. Only you can calm this child so quickly so completely. In the embrace of your love there is safety and comfort.

As you cherish each smile, each blink, the love overflows you are enraptured and you begin to sing a sweet love song to your child. Though you'd never sing in front of anyone before you find yourself doing so now. How precious this child is to you, how very very precious.

This is how the Father delights in his children:
The LORD your God is with you,
he is mighty to save.
He will take great delight in you,
he will quiet you with his love,
he will rejoice over you with singing."
Zephania 3:17
God sings over you! He longs to hold you near, your very breath uplifts his heart. Are you hurting, is your heart broken? Let him comfort you with his love. Let him hold you close to his heart. You are his child, he is with you all ready, all you need to do is reach out and ask him to hold you.

And you say you can't write? I thought this was very eloquent, and poetic.

Jami,
You have such a wonderful way with words. You make deep thoughts and ideas so simple and clear to understand. I hope you don't mind, but I copied "A Fathers Love" so I would have it handy to give to someone that might need it.
