“Beware that you do not despise or feel scornful toward or think little of one of these little ones, for I tell you that in heaven their angels always are in the presence of and look upon the face of My Father Who is in heaven.” Matthew 18:10 ->me: Yesterday Brooklyn turned 1 week old. The addition of her to our family, even if it is temporary, has been an adjustment for everyone. After church the Lord laid it on my heart to circle the proverbial family wagons and discuss our situation (Marianne, Bella, Sophie, and I – Prim and Brooklyn were napping). We all went out to the backyard firepit, we started off in prayer, and then I shared. Two important things came out of this time together – 1) Marianne and I had the opportunity to talk to Bella and Sophie about taking a step in their faith by talking to God and asking for ears to hear His voice. 2) All together, we took a step back to admit that our lives are thrown up in the air a bit and we will all lose and gain things as we walk this road. It is so important for all of us to maintain perspective by taking in all that the Lord is doing through this amazing moment in the life of our family. It is just like God to give me this verse today, to help me remember that my girls, at their young age, have angels in heaven that have a direct presence with the person and face of God the Father…that is just a little humbling.
