"Nothing teaches us about the preciousness of Creator as much as when we learn the emptiness of everything else. Turning away with bitter scorn from earth's hives, where we find no honey, but many sharp stings, we rejoice in Him whose faithful word is sweeter than honey or the honeycomb. In every trouble we should first seek to realize God's presence with us. Only let us enjoy His smile, and then we can bear our daily cross with a willing heart for his dear sake."
I want that mindset to rejoice in Him whose faithful word is sweeter than honey...
Ian has been awake for much more of the day now, which provides more opportunity to just hang out with him. I've been thinking lately about how sweet he is with Lydia. If she's on his lap I'll say, "Ian, tickle her arm." And he does! He always reaches for her as soon as she's on his lap. One time she was laying in bed with him so her face was really close to his. He just turned his head and was looking at her so sweetly. He reached over with his arm, as if just to hold her.
These are such sweet tokens to us that Ian is still with us...
Thanks for praying
