I've been seeing that it's Son or Daughter day on friends Facebook posts lately. I'm extremely blessed with 2 amazing sons and a fabulous little grandson! There is no way to express the words of the heart! How can I begin to describe the Love that would do ANYTHING
If you have a child, grandchild, niece, nephew or a pet that holds your heart you understand. That love is ALWAYS there. Even if you're going through a rough season with them, my guess is that you would run to their side if they needed you!
In my true Self Discovery Journaling style, I started to write about it and I encourage you to grab your journal and walk through this process with me!
Think about it...What have you done or would you do for them to make them happy or to give them something they not only needed but the things they wanted? Were there times you sacrificed to do that? How did you feel when you were able to do that?
Write down your memories...
I have a great memory as a child of being woken up one October morning by my parents. It was still dark outside and they said "get up! we're going to Disneyland!" I have 5 sisters and 2 of them have October birthdays we were going to celebrate them.
Funny thing is I don't even remember being there but I remember the excitement of the surprise wake up and the anticipation of something so huge for me! When I look back I see what a financial sacrifice that had to have been for my parents. Throughout my life I know that they sacrificed and made things happen for my happiness. I'm sure my sisters would say the same.
Think about the times your parents showed their love for you through their actions and write a few down. Again, how did it make you feel then and how does it make you feel now?
To what lengths would you go to save your child's life? I think we would all do whatever it took!
Our Papa God gave his ONLY SON our brother, to die so we could be saved.
Let that sink in...
Would you make that sacrifice?
I know I couldn't give up either of my sons to save someone else and I don't think you could either.
You may be thinking yeah but we aren't God. No we're not but we can take the feeling that thought evokes, and meditate on it. Let it sink in...and get a glimpse of the Magnitude of the Love he has for you!
He would do ANYTHING for you! He's a good good daddy. He wants to spoil you with good things. Ask him what he has for you today and tell him your hearts desire!
May this be a new a blessed season for you as we enter the new Jewish year!
