What a wonderful thought! :-)
This is so lovely Stephanie. What a great perspective.
oh amen to that one. I woke up grumpy, so lots of holding by my heavenly father would be perfect!
I think you are being worn by God everyday. You just don't realize it...
That is so true. I think that is why Attachment Parenting makes so much sense to me -- it is how God parents.You're being worn...we just sometimes forget it.((((hugs)))))
If it is a hard day you are definitely being worn. Just think of the footprints poem. This is very beautifully put. God Bless!!
Me too, Steph. I NEED to be worn everyday. Problem is, I keep getting down. Thankfully, He will pick me up EVERY time I ask or draw near! Great post!
Lovely thought and I hope you have a beautiful day.
I do too! That is for sure a deep thought! Great one!
I never thought of it in that perspective! Thanks for the reminder ;-)
Just found your blog, and LOVE it! I also wanted to know about whatyour favorite carrier is. There are so many to choose from, and some of them can be a little pricey. My baby is 6 months right now, and I have the Ultimate baby wrap which I am not loving. It has too much material and he sags in it. Any suggetions for a better one?
Oh yes. I'd like to be worn today also.
It continues to amaze me how profound you are in such a few, simple words. God's given you a gift...keep using it! Have a beautiful Sunday!
Each and every day, yes. Well said.
Just what I need today. Thanks.
and he sits up all night watching us breath, and he sings, and he gently leads. I love him.
I know the feeling
I'm loving today's post, Steph! Beautifully put, that's for certain!
me too! great post.
I love it! Beautiful thought!
I linked to you today. I really love this image. http://therunamuck.com/2009/01/18/invisible-arms/
Ivy looks so BIG in this picture! Older than 4 months. Your post made me think of the Footprints passage. Beautiful.
What a word of encouragement. Something I really needed today as I sat at home with my sick baby missing church. :( Thanks for sharing.
Well said, mama. I, too, think that my relationship with Christ is the reason APing has resonnated with me.
I'm SOOOO with you right now. Our little guy arrived with lots of drama thanks to being at a wrong angle on January 7th. He's great. I'm dealing with severe complications and trying to stay out of the hospital. He wants to be held all the time. So do I. Holding him and caring for him while I'm feeling like this makes me appreciate how God always holds us and cares for us so much more. And when my little guy squirms as I learn how to use a sling, it makes me wonder about my own squirming when God is trying to hold me.thanks for sharing this.....a rather impatient-for-healing redhead needed to hear another mom's heart today
A beautiful thought that I have now been reflecting on all day. Thank you!
i never heard of god referred to like that before, but i like it. :) makes perfect sense. hugs.
I couldn't have said it better.
You and me both! Ivy looks so comfy and cute, of course!
great thought! I am right there with you.
awww - yes - today and everyday!!!
There's no place that I'd rather be. I'm currently going thru my first Army deployment and have 3 little ones. I'm only getting thru it b/c of God's "attachment parenting". My daily desire is to be held by Him! Thanks for this perspective.
I know this isn't what this post is about at all so forgive me, but... your jewelry is amazing. (I would have typed this in teeny tiny letters to approximate whispering if blogger allowed such things.)
That was very lovely. Sounds like you've had a few rough days what with the bad weather-here's to hoping the weather gets better so the boys can go out and run off some energy :)
We are so very much on the same wavelength, my friend :)
I like that! Hey, are the mei tai carriers comfy? I like my pouch sling, but just wondering :)
That is so cute and precious! I completely agree. I'm quite a touchy-feely person, and I know that my Heavenly Father is there, but there have been many times when I just wanted to be wrapped up in a great big hug by Him :)Hoping you feel His arms around you today!
Oh that's a good thought. Lately I've been wanting my mommy to hold me and make me some soup. God would do an even better job!
I want to be held everyday!!!
Hey there,Ivy is beautiful as always...Can you tell me a little about babywearing? You would think with 6 kiddos I would have some experience with this by now! I looked at some slings at Babies R' Us and online. Any insider suggestions?
All you need do is ask... and what a beautiful way to do it by reminding each of us the power of God...
Lovely thought. :)Staci
I LOOOVE it when you do a post like this. Short and profound, moving and lovely. I find I use far too many words to say things sometimes. Beautiful post!
What a comforting thought. Thanks Steph.
I love this post. I so often hear from non AP people about God's tough side so it's really nice to be reminded of His loving parenting of us. Makes me want to just curl up and let Him hold me.
I never thought about it like this Steph but you are so right :)
Yeah, that's an awesome image!! And if He could put me down for a nap that would be much appreciated as well.
Beautiful. And yes, I could use to be worn right now, too.
Ah! I'd like to be worn too. :)
Hmmmm ... so true. We all need to be held, one of the reasons we parent the way we do.We had a great time babywearing in the snow this weekend. Pictures on my blog and at my daughter'shttp://growing-in-rejoicing.blogspot.com/http://myfirstdaysoflife.blogspot.com/
Have you seen Rob Bell's video "Rain"?Watch it.
Very sweet thoughts...
Oh, me too!!! My baby was always so at peace when I was wearing him. It made all of life's worries go away! I just love that thought!!
Such a sweet and comforting thought. A friend of mine made a similar statement to me the other day. Guess God really wants me to feel it. :-)
Your comment is gonna totally make my day!
