Precious moments. I wonder if at times, the Lord just mercifully lifts the blinders of stress, troubles, other thoughts, etc., and let's us just see the preciousness of a moment. Like today, while we were driving to the zoo, Hilkiah excitedly exclaims "Mom! I saw a shark!". I struck me, for how much longer will that little boy be excitedly telling Mom about a painting of a shark that he sees out the window? These "little guy" days pass so quickly. The thought made me kind of sad.
Then tonight as I was doing this or that Hilkiah says "when you are done with those dishes, can you hold me and read a book." Awwwww. Melt.
Lord, I need You so much! I need your enabling to enjoy and treasure these dear little moments, but to also look forward to the future ones you may give, as my babies grow up! I also need Your enabling to STOP and take the time to hold them and read a book! Thank You, so much, Lord Jesus, for giving me these precious little ones!!!
And before I say good night, I must share a cute Clara moment from last week. Hilkiah was noisily rattling a tin with crayons, when big sis stepped in and firmly told him "Hilkiah. That is too loud for peoples nerves." :-)
