I wrote this in my journal when I was a stay at home mom raising 3 children, on July 11, 1995: In the midst of a storm in our life our 5 year old daughter Deena asked, Mommy is Jesus here? I answered, "Yes!" She saw that her parents were struggling emotionally and asked, "Where?" I replied, "Deena, pretend you are mommy and daddy okay? Now I will be the part of Jesus." I then picked her up in my arms like a baby and carried her around the room. She giggled!
Later in the car, she asked, "Mommy, is Jesus still carrying us in the car?" I said, "Yes, He is!" Deena replied, "I like that." I asked her why and she answered, "because it just feels good."
The Lord is my keeper......Psalm 121:5a
Even though our little girl could see that her mom and dad were struggling with a lot of sadness, I was able to reassure her that we were trusting God to carry us through this storm and all life's storms in our future.
