... as the fire glowed & gently crackled a few feet away.
Her entire body relaxed as her little arms stretched out. Her breathing became deep & regular. All expression of emotion melted from her face and, I felt the weight of her tiny head, cradled in my hand, as she slipped into peaceful rest. An inquisitive cat watched from the back of my wing-back chair purring loudly. I drank in the moment & tucked it in my heart for forever.
It reminded me of how I can always find sweet peace, rest & safety in the arms of God.
Seems like all I could see was the struggle
Haunted by ghosts that lived in my past
Bound up in shackles of all my failures
Wondering how long is this gonna last
Then you look at this prisoner & say to me son,"stop fighting a fight that's already been won."
He's not done with us yet... rest in HIS arms!
