right now i have a headache. my poor little boy asher has had a pounding headache and earache all day today which has directly contributed to my own headache.
it is interesting how parenting makes me think so much about God. He did call Himself the Good Father. i sat there on the couch with my sick little guy and listened to him cry and didn't really have much i could do to help him. everything within me wanted to make it all better. but there wasn't much i could do but pray, comfort him, get him some meds, and sit with him.
once again reminds me on Jesus's words in the sermon on the mount on parenting:
if you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give what is good to those who ask Him! matthew 7:11
i longed to help my son because of my love for him. my Father in heaven sees my need, He sees my hurt, He knows my pain and not only does He long to help me, but He is fully able and willing to help. He is the Good Father.
