I love the ultimate crib sheet in this picture - somebody had it embroidered with a verse. I don't know if you can read what it is but it says "The One who watches over you neither slumbers nor sleeps" - Psalm 121:4
As I stood over Rilynn taking this picture, I was reminded of how she lies in her crib and has no idea that I'm so close. When I let her cry for a few minutes and she begins to flail her legs and arms, I'm right there, standing over her, watching. Yet she's so unaware of my presence.
Sometimes I just have to grin because she's fine - she just doesn't know it. All of her basic needs are met. She's fed, she's warm, she's in a safe place.
How many times am I just like Rilynn? I'm flailing my arms; upset at my circumstances. But my heavenly Father is right there...so close. Yet I'm so unaware - I'm too busy being upset at the present circumstances - even though my basic needs are met.
I gotta wonder if He, too, might grin at my response. "Oh child, I'm right here. Just look up."
That time I stopped praying...
