Encouragement for Mother’s: Loving On God


My oldest son Noah is 9 and yet he still a total love bug with his Mommy.  I’m cherishing these days because I know the “Mommy is so stupid and just doesn’t understand” days are right around the corner.  Last Saturday I was trying with all of my might to sleep-in.  After all, the baby was still asleep so I wanted to be too.  I heard our bedroom door open.  I hoped against hope that if I just lay still whoever it was might decide to get their own breakfast because, afterall, I’ve taught them how to pour a bowl of cereal and toast a bagel.

I realized it wasn’t meant to be as I could ear tip-toeing around to my side of the bed followed by the not so sweet morning breath of someone breathing right in my face.  Before I opened my eyes I heard… “I love you Mommy!”  It was my Noah.  I teared up!  As much as I wanted to stay quietly in bed this little guy had just said the perfect thing to make me change my mind.  I hadn’t done anything yet that day to earn his affection yet there it was.

As the day wore on and I eventually made it to my Bible reading a thought struck me.  The way my Noah loved on me first thing, isn’t that what we should do for our heavenly Father?  Shouldn’t we love on Him who has given us everything before the clutter of the day starts to invade our days?  After all… what is the greatest commandment?

Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. Matthew 22:37

My little boy teaches me much!
