I just had the sweetest time these past few hours watching my littlest grandson, Bradyn. He is only 15 months old and so adorable.

We first watched a little of Ice Age 2: The Meltdown but not really because he was more interested in getting into the "toybox" footstool to find his favorite musical box and his plastic Sponge Bob whose eyes turn when you push the button on the back. His little hands can hardly even reach around to push it but he knows how it works and he tries hard to make it work like it does when grandma pushes it. He can say Sponge Bob but he doesn't say much else, accept of course mama and dada and all of those other baby words that make sense to them but being grown-up we lose the translation.

I think it's sometimes like that when we listen to God. He tells us in so many ways how we can have a wonderful life; we can be free to love and live but we are so grown-up in the world that we lose the translation when He speaks. We think we know everything but in truth we really need to become like children - accept what He says as truth and have faith that we will be taken care of as promised.

I know that was how Bradyn felt today with me. He laid back in my arms and fell fast asleep, knowing that he was loved and protected and that I would still be here with him when he woke up. And I was! He slept for almost 90 minutes and woke with a smile when he saw my face looking down on him.

I long to live my life like that daily with my Father and my Savior. I can wake up every morning with a smile knowing that He is always with me and trust in His faithfulness and truth.
