My baby girl is growing up too fast. She rarely lets me rock her anymore because she knows it'll put her to sleep. She is quite the social butterfly and doesn't like to miss anything. I used to rock her to sleep all the time. I would worry that I was creating a habit that would be hard to kick, but I didn't want to miss that sweet time with my baby. I knew she wouldn't stay so small for long. On this past Monday she fell asleep as I was giving her a bottle and I just rocked her for a while trying to soak up every second. Things have really seemed to be put into perspective lately. A mother that I know has had to say goodbye to not only the love of her life, her husband, and the father of her children, but her youngest daughter as well. My heart breaks for her. I just can't imagine the pain that she is feeling. I pray for a peace for her and her older daughter that can only come from our heavenly Father.

I have been thinking a lot about this verse in Matthew 6 "Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." Where are our hearts? Aur we focusing on the things that will someday be gone in the blink of an eye or are we focusing on things with eternal value? My prayer is that I will focus on the things that God treasures and not the treasures of this world.

  1. That verse really hits home after sorting thru everything las week and seeing the condition of some of it That coupled with what happened to Tim and Hannah should be an eye opener for all of us Such true and relevant words.
