Protection


Today I found my almost-two-year old had climbed out of his napping crib and had returned to bed with an (unopened) bagful of pennies (from my elementary 'math' bin) for closer inspection....

A little while ago, a child came upstairs reporting that my three-year-old had tied something around her neck and was crying. Thankfully by the time I got to her she'd gotten it off and we (once again) had a very serious talk about never putting things around your neck or anyone else's...


Twice recently Sam has gotten out of the back yard and into the front (or side), where one of the kids 'happens' to see him and rescue him...


These things got me thinking: how often does the Lord protect us from danger, and we don't really even realize that those small scares could so easily have become really serious situations? He is so good, and I must remember that each breath we take is a gift from Him. Thank you, Lord, for your protection.

And how many times does he let us get into a situation where we panic (rightly or wrongly) before rescuing us or showing us a way out? Letting us fight in the flesh until we've had enough - like a kid in the pool flailing and scared, until Daddy reminds us He's been holding us the whole time.

When I think of the many things that could happen to our precious babies when we take our eyes off them it chills me to the bone. I am so thankful that we have a heavenly Father watching over us all and He places guardian angels around us!
