Well, while in L.A., Ev is sort of an easy jump off point for my posts. He's just pretty irresistible.
One of the reason's why he is a great subject point is because there is just such a sweetness with the love exchange. He hugs you back. It's the cutest most endearing thing! 💛
Right before this picture, Ev, Mary, and myself were in that lake behind us in a paddle boat together. We put a lifejacket on him he wasn't totally thrilled about, but we knew the importance of it... Once we got in the boat, Ev forgot about the lifejacket, and he thought he was a little sailor and had control of the boat I'll bet. But in reality, I had control of the boat. But he had fun steering it for a bit.
Even though Ev doesn't fully know everything at all or understands the details in his life, he does know, he KNOWS he is loved. And he is enjoying his little life of adventure. He also reciprocates the love that he senses in such a precious way.
So to, we as God's children, do not need to know everything, or have everything figured out, we just should know today just HOW LOVED we are by our Father. We need to know that Our God is mighty and will protect us. We need to know that sometimes when He puts a "lifejacket" on us that feels a little cumbersome, it is there to protect us.
And most importantly, as we are given these days here on earth full of adventure, we need to know that Our Loving Father has the purest of love for us... and He actually rests in HIS love for us. He loves us even when we act perturbed about something. He joys over us.
So we can rest because He is at rest. We can reciprocate the love we know God has for us. We can exchange love with GOD as we rest in His loving arms today. And we will end up in the right and best place in our lives journey as He will be faithful to take us where we are supposed to be, step by step.
