Loving Arms

{this is a re-post from last summer - but today I am feeling led to post it again! may it bless someone today!}

He's trying to get his point across, but it is coming out in 2 year old gibberish.
I keep apologizing, over and over, for not being able to understand quite what he wants.
He's frustrated.
I'm frustrated.
And so it starts-going around in circles, trying to figure out the one thing that will calm him down.
Juice? No.
Snack? No.
Movie? No.
Toys? No.
Books? No.
At this point of the screaming, and mumbling, I am ready to throw in the towel and give up. My frustration has hit the point of almost breaking.
It is then, when I have tried all that I can think of to quiet and calm him, that I pick him up and simply just hold him.
And he quiets-little head on my shoulder, arms wrapped around my neck.
My heart is melting. His is no longer breaking.
This is what he wanted. Wrapped in the loving arms of Me! His mama!

Reminds me of when I am at my own breaking point. Trying to make it through and noone seems to understand. When it is just not working out the way I want it to and I am about to give up. It is then that I feel the loving arms of my Heavenly Father wrapped around me ever so gently carrying me through! He was there all along...just like I will always be!

  1. Were you spying into our home?!?! That's exactly where we're at these days. Trying to figure out the two year old gibberish and everyone being frustrated and confused. This was a good post for me to read this morning. Thanks!

  2. Oh, those toddler twos! Bella is at a similar spot right now - she is trying SO hard and somedays I just don't get it. Asking her to show me generally helps - but not always!

    Hugs to you sweet friend!

  3. Hi Amy Sweetie...
    What a beautiful write this evening. I so enjoyed myself here. I too remember the gibberish of the 2 year olds, we have 8 grand now, and I am still going through some with them. It can be frustrating but those hugs and loves are so worth it, are they not? Your comparison tonight is perfect. Oh how we love to be wrapped in Jesus' love. Thank you, thank you.

    This is the Miracle Weekend makeover. I am one of the hosting sites. For every comment left, Guideposts magazine will pay a dollar, to the next cancer makeover patient. Please stop by and read the story about 9 year old Charlie, and bless me with a comment. Out goal between the 4 or 5 blogs is 5,000. I know we can do it. I would appreciate it, if you pass the word around to as many friends as possible.

    Thank you sweetie for a wonderful post. I love it. Have a glorious weekend. Country hugs from Phoenix, Sherry

  5. I love nannying...because I learn so much about how Papa sees us through interactions with little ones. I can only imagine how much more profound it will be with my own babies!
