Rooted



"To be rooted is perhaps the most important and least recognized need of the human soul." ~ Simone Weil

So, Hannah and I were walking the other day.

Holding hands.

Smiling, actually laughing a bit.

And I innocently say to her, "You are my beautiful little ladybug."

To which she replies, "And you, mama are my daisy."

Speaks volumes, doesn't it?

"...so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith — that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God." Ephesians 3:17-19

First thing that came to my mind is... A daisy is a great place for a little ladybug to land. God is so good and thanks for this precious story!!! Living the daisy life too!
Blessings!

That is just so sweet and lovely. I'm so happy that your Hannah tells you these things. I know it is because she has a present mommy who models that for her.

Love you~
