Resting in God

Cuddles with grandchildren are the best! I’ve just had a cuddle with our youngest grandchild. Coming to me with outstretched arms, we sat on the couch, her body snuggled against mine while enjoying this special time together.

What treasured moments they are! We all know that young children are very mobile and easily distracted, wanting to climb off to go and play or explore. Each cuddle provides a time to rest, to have a break from our usual routines and focus on the precious young person sitting on our lap. How similar it is when we take time for our devotions, Bible reading and prayers.
