I love these early days in a new babies life when they curl up in a sweet little heap, with their feet tucked under their bum! It starts in the womb and the comfort they find in that position continues for a few months after birth... my new little one seems to like sleeping on her tummy. After wrapping her and putting her on her back for 6 weeks we have switched to her tummy, despite all of the humdrum finger shaking I may get from this decision!
Her sweet dependency, joy in my presence, and the pure unrivaled comfort she feels when close to me, makes me think! From where do I find complete, real and lasting comfort on a daily basis? It's something to think about....
The God of All Comfort -Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. For just as the sufferings of Christ flow over into our lives, so also through Christ our comfort overflows. If we are distressed, it is for your comfort and salvation; if we are comforted, it is for your comfort, which produces in you patient endurance of the same sufferings we suffer. And our hope for you is firm, because we know that just as you share in our sufferings, so also you share in our comfort.
2 Corinthians 1:3-7
"May I only seek refuge and find comfort in the heavenly arms, the healing Word, and precious love of my savior."
