Day 94: September 14, 2012- Daddy Tucks Away

Daddy Slips Bathtime Under the Covers and Tucks It Away.

When you're ready for bed and need comforting, when you're slipping after bathtime and need to be nestled in your cradle, I'll tuck you in.

It's kindof a cool thought. Like the bathtime sprig on top of your head. It'll dry.
And in the meantime, Daddy will hold you in his arms.


A kid, and a dad, couldn't ask for more than that.
The Readings:

Deuteronomy 26:1-27:26, Luke 10:38-11:13, Psalm 76:1-12, Proverbs 12:15-17

Old Testament.
How sad it is reading of God calling his people to whole-heartedly obey him. He asks it again and again. He commands. He inspires. He warns.

And nothing he says will change what comes next in the story: that they deny him. I know, I know. Spoiler alert.

But it makes me think. Will we do the same? Are we?

He so loves us. Like a Lover in Song of Songs who is jealous for his beloved. Like a Father in the beginning who wants to walk with his kids.

There is no greater purpose than to love him back.

New Testament.
Mary made the better choice, and it will not be taken from her. I'm sensing a theme. She chooses to sit at Jesus' feet and is blessed for it.

I wonder how much of our day is spent preparing the meal and how much sitting at Jesus' feet. Seems like a good evening to just love God.

Great is God! Glorious and majestic! More than the mountains. No wonder you are greatly feared.

Fools think their way is right.

The wise listen to others. And they deflect the insults of fools when they encounter them, remaining calm.
