Today I had planned to spend most of the three hours cleaning my house. At first I put the radio on and then realized that I needed to make a call while I had some peace and quiet. After the call, my thoughts started going and I forgot to turn the music back on. I started to pray for our family In TX, for my husband and for my little guy, then my prayer changed to a prayer for my son and his future love.
I started thinking about the girl that would one day steal his heart. I wondered if she's been born yet or if she's simply a twinkle in her parents eyes. I thought, will she ever know how close he is to me? How much he needs me and my constant attention? Will he tell her that he breastfed past 2 and slept best when I had my arm under him?... Probably not. I started praying for her and her family. My wish is that her parents are teaching her of Gods love, as I am teaching my little guy.
I know that one day my son will grow up, he will sleep in his own room (without his mommy beside him), he will go off to college, and be the man that God intends for him to be. Right now it seems like so far away but just as these two years have raced by so will many many more years. So today as he naps beside me I will cherish the closeness, the love and the happiness and treasure the bond that I have with my son.
I will also stay in prayer for his love and her family, for I know that God has already chosen her and chosen their paths. I pray that I'm able to instill Gods love in my sons heart so that he may grow up to be a Godly man and radiate Gods love through his actions.
Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
