The Book

This morning I saw an article on Face Book about a children's book that I use to read to my children. The book is about a mother that always sneaks into her sons room and rocks him after he is asleep at night. She continues to do this even after he is an adult and move away from home.  Some people find the book creepy, but the article told the back story on why the author wrote the book. His wife had experienced a stillbirth and he wrote the book in memory of his lost child. It was very touching.
One of my sons especially loved this book, and I read it to him a lot. One day when he was reading the book to his child he sent me a text telling me how much he loved me and his fond memory of me reading to him. It made me cry.
The love of a mother holding her child at any age is never creepy, at least I don't think so. It is tender and heart felt. It is the way God holds me deep within His heart, all the time. He sings over me, just like the song in the book "I'll love you forever, I'll like you for always...."  And, it meant so much to me that day when my son recognized the love I felt through reading him a book like that. He wants his own child to know that too.
Jesus, thank you for your love. It is forever and it is good. It is in your heart and it lives in me. I am captured in Your Hands forever. Say That Again!
