Quiet Please

There is something to be said about it.

I know as a young mother of two active boys I would often crave that quiet. If they weren’t talking… the tv, Nintendo or music was being heard. We had to carve out time for quiet.

 I would sometimes try to escape to the bath tub and lock the door. But with only one bathroom, locking the door was prohibited. So “quiet” wasn’t easy to come by….But once in a while, I would have the boys turn everything off and just listen.  Sometimes it worked, most of the time it didn’t if I am honest. Continue reading

Be Still

Do you remember when one of your kids came to you crying with a splinter and you were trying to get it out of that precious finger? “Be still” were the two words out of my mouth every time.  They were spoken so that my little guy would sit still so I could dig that tiny sliver of wood out!

DaDa

I heard the voice of God and a one word sermon in a little girl’s voice. The graphic on the screen read…”Hello, my name is…God”. The series on just who He is was coming to an end. As the pastor opened the sermon in prayer, I heard the voice of a sweet toddler.

The Aramaic word used by young children when addressing their father was Abba. It was not used by the Jews because of the familiarity. Jesus used the word to indicate the Father/Son relationship with God.

The closest English equivalent to Abba is exactly Daddy, but Dada – a baby’s earliest attempt to name its father is so fitting.

“Dada”

My Abba, my Daddy, my Father, my God.

One precious word coming from a sweet little girl as she reached for her daddy.

The voice of God’s love in one word.

Embrace it. He loves YOU.
