Little do they know they will always be your little Prince or Princess. Loving a child can give you a greater understanding of God’s Love toward us. It is unconditional, undeserving, without fail, without judgement, pure, honest, and so much more. In healthy relationships parents love children and in return children love their parents.
When you love someone you make sacrifices for them without considering your selfish needs. When loving your children you go out of your way for their happiness. They have so much to learn and as their parent you have so much to give them. Also when loving them there exists the natural inclination to protect them. All of these things God does for us without us asking for Him to do so.
My little princess (picture here) has come to me in such a unique way. She is my sister. It has been my pleasure to Love her through everything life brings our way, be it good, bad, or indifferent. Watching her learn and grow is an amazing experience. And teaching about life is exciting and refreshing. The hardest thing to do is to see her gracefully yet boldly come into her teenage years. That’s all we will say about teenage years for now ….. 🙂
Children have no idea how much you love them until you show them with your time. They understand your presence at there sporting events, PTA Mtgs, School Assemblies, Graduations, Award Presentations, Play Performances, Recitals, Church Gatherings, On Vacation with them, etc. all translate in to “I Love You”. And yes the reverse is true. They understand your absence as, “I have more important things to do”. Express your love and be PRESENT with your child. Help them to understand the Unconditional Love you have for them. While it is true that we can not give what we do not have, begin to understand how much they need you. Should you find yourself in a situation that you have never know a fathers love or a mothers love, then begin to introduce yourself to God who is the father of all. His love for you will give you joy, peace, understanding and put you in a position to love others especially your children in return.
So, the challenge for today is to understand God’s Love toward you. Begin by Loving daily on your child. (your sister, brother, niece, nephew, cousin, etc.)
