My Sweet Pea & My Savior

Ah, my Sweet Pea is 10months! How fast it’s all gone! I am amazed how inquisitive she is becoming. I love watching from a distance as she tries to open a drawer or find a toy that rolled under the couch. She’s becoming more independent. In the past there was times when she insisted I hold her ALL the time. That phase has hopefully passed for good but there are still many moments when she needs me! Right before naps/bed she gets really whiny. She’ll crawl over to me or pull on my leg and holler until I pick her up. When she wakes in her crib, most often, she’ll bawl and bawl. But as soon as I open the door and she sees me, she stops crying! Just the other day she bonked her eye on a corner and started screaming. I rushed to her, picked her up and she almost immediately stopped crying. Why am I such a comfort to her? What it is about Mom that brings so much relief? I don’t do anything different than Daddy or her Grammies/aunties!
I came to the conclusion that it must be the same reason that I find so much comfort in my Savior, Jesus Christ. If I am scared (most likely because I’m home alone! HA) I turn to prayer and automatically feel comforted. When I’m confused or worried I find relief in scriptures. In general, I am at ease traveling through this lovely life and I know it is because I find relief in Christ. I know that my life is lead by him and whatever happens is all a part of his plan for me.
Isaiah 49:13 Shout for joy, O heavens; rejoice, O earth; burst into song, O mountains! For the LORD comforts his people and will have compassion of the afflicted ones.
Isaiah 66:13 As a mother comforts her child, so will I comfort you. (when I was looking for scriptures about comfort I found this one! How fitting & perfect for this post!)


  1. AMEN!! I love this! Thanks for sharing these verses! Isaiah 66:13 is perfect!! I love Cora's outfit by the way ;)

  2. Amen! Great verses! Well said Julie! I feel so much comfort doing that very same thing when Dan is working out of town. And as a bonus, I can name every stinkin sound in the house and Dan laughs at me for it!
