Building Trust

This Mother's Day was an absolutely perfect spring day. The flowers were blooming, the lawn was mowed, and the breeze was just right for playing outside before dinner. Best of all, the daddies were in their playing mode. After the girls chased PaPa around the yard, the daddies played "Baby Toss." I'm sure they viewed that game as a way of building trust as they tossed the girls high into the air and then scooped them up in their strong arms.

How delighted is my Heavenly Father to catch me in His strong arms when I am feeling tossed about? Well, the look on the faces of the daddies showed me that it is His delight. The simple childlike faith on the faces of the girls tells me that trusting Him to catch me can be loads of fun.

But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee. Psalm 5:11
