Please stop and look…..
I take my mind off what I’m working on how many times a day to answer the little one asking me to “look”.
Sometimes it’s a great time for them to ask, sometimes it’s frustrating because I’m in the middle of the task….
How many times do I really enjoy looking at what they so passionately want me to see?
How many times do I rush to look just so I can say I “looked”?
The years fly by so fast….
It seems like yesterday I was taking all the time in the world to look into their faces, the wonder of having a baby to hold and treasure…
How does that change over the years?
We long to look, gaze and enjoy our precious bundles of joy
Then as they grow up, we get busy, forgetting the joy in the looking at them
Do we think they aren’t as precious? No….
Time just seems shorter now, more things to do than when they were babies….
Soccer, Art Classes, School, Scouts, etc.
On and on the list goes…
I must take time to look….
Look at them….Look at their work…..Look at what they’re passionate about….
Look at their lives……for it is so very important to look…..
Looking takes my eyes off myself and on to the ones who really matter.
The blessings God has given me…..to teach and to train…..to raise to know and love Him above all!
Look…..they need me to look!
