sleeping beauty

Sarah climbed into my lap and just fell asleep. I love the way it feels when she just surrenders all her trust to me. She lays here so warm, and all her weight is placed fully on me. I could never imagine or hope the day would come when she would finally trust and love me. How sweet it is to be loved by my little girl. I wonder how God must feel? When the ones He loves run here and there but never rest in His warm safe arms?

’Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus,And to take Him at His Word;Just to rest upon His promise,And to know, “Thus says the Lord!”
Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him!How I’ve proved Him o’er and o’erJesus, Jesus, precious Jesus!O for grace to trust Him more!
