My friend Tanya was baptized Sunday and said something truly inspiring when asked who Christ was to her. She said for her, Jesus is the perfect example of a truly sacrificial parent. Made me think about how badly it hurts me to see a lightning quick shot given to my daughter, and how I would take that pain FOR her if there was any way I could. I cannot imagine the pain our Heavenly Father felt watching his son get crucified for a world of sinners like me. I could never do it. I can't stand one (or three) little pinches given to my child. Can you imagine the helpless frustration? I've never understood my Lord's love for me quite this clearly, and it makes me weepy.
All that to say, praise the Lord for those of you who were praying for me (and Macy) yesterday at 2:30! The nurse was wonderful, and lightning fast, and although Macy did scream and I know she was hurting, I nursed her right away and she was only a little fussy yesterday and almost 100% today!
And thanks, Tanya, for the perspective Sunday- I was so encouraged by you!
