Arms of a mother

26 03 2009

On a flight today next to a 14 month old girl and her Mother. On a quick side note, still can’t figure out why all passengers have to buckle up for the least little bit if turbulence…but if you are a baby, well just sitting in an adult lap is fine :-0.

I digress, the picture u saw in my quick 35 min flight was a shot of our relationship with God. As we were taxing to take off the lil girl was looking, touching, and exploring everything within arms reach. Then, as it usually turns out, on the approach in she was crying as the cabin pressure was dropping.

The thought came to me that is a picture of our relationship with God. He holds us in His lap and let’s us explore the world around us. Never stopping us, but there to make sure we are okay. Just as the Mother, God looks at us and smiles as we are there exploring. He is laughing with us and holding us close in delight.

As our world changes…as we get scared…as we panic…He is right there to comfort. He is there to hold us tight. Forever we are like that baby, in the arms of out Mother. Safe, loved, secure.

Breathe In &Smile Out
