So, it’s a new week and I’m wondering whether like me, you want to learn something beautiful of your Father this morning. As usual, another round of weekly tidbit speaking His heart to you, His heart of love. I’m sure you’re already blessed and doing wonderful. Today’s post shall be showing us how that we are indeed extravagantly blessed.
We shall be checking out a small story…
It was a sunny Saturday afternoon and my mother, Kelvin, and I were on a long deserved vacation. We had spent the last few months hurrying between doctors’ appointments, the office and my family house in Magodo; so getting some alone time had been close to impossible. I wasn’t sure how long we spent there, just laying by the pool and letting the gentle breeze caress our skins as slow music played in the background.
I remember watching Kelvin crawl slowly towards me right before he put his head on my chest and started to speak in that garbled tone that I didn’t understand but it made me laugh anyways. Kelvin had always been a joy to behold; he was cute, funny, he had this ability to pick something and focus so hard on it, he had strong white teeth and was very playful despite himself. He always had a smile on his face, even just after he had taken bitter medicine; he’d have that small smile with a slight cleft in his chin that deepened as his smile widened.
In retrospect, I should have known not to take my attention off him, even for a little while. I shouldn’t have turned to get him that water bottle he was so desperately pointing at; I shouldn’t have given him that ball. The bottle was in his bag, right beside mine a few feet from our chairs and I didn’t want to trouble Shade, the babysitter. She had been through so much because of me these past few months.
My little baby was crawling determinedly towards the pool trying to catch his little ball. His focus was at the highest possible level. He laughed as he crawled after his ball. As I took the water bottle and turned back to the chair and to my surprise, Kelvin was already drowning and screaming Shade’s name. I couldn’t watch his beautiful face freeze to death, so I dived in to grab him out myself.
The grace of our Father is out of proportion to the fall of man. He loved us before the foundations of the earth but that’s not the deal now. The deal is in the story, Mama Kelvin jumped in to save her son that was calling out to Shade, who was probably fast asleep or in shock. She jumped in to save her son, her own. In same manner, God jumped into humanity to save you, through and in Christ. His love for you always is and always would be. He has got you and would never let you go. Just think on this, you are nowhere else but in His arms and on your cheeks He is continually planting holy kisses of love.
