No No's

This morning I had to say "no, no, Ava," so many times I sounded like a broken record. The issue at hand is that she wants everything she shouldn't have--especially if it could hurt her.

I redirected her three times from electrical cords that she was reaching for behind various pieces of furniture, and I picked her up and loved on her after an object that she chose to use for leverage toppled as she was pulling up. Undaunted, she moved toward other equally inappropriate objects.

The morning's events made me think about God's view of me (as does almost everything she does these days).

I understand that the absolute ONLY reason God ever says "no, no" to me is because of His love. I also realize that He knows best. Why, then, do I ever question Him? That's my thought to ponder for today.

  1. It is amazing the things that I have seen differently as a result of being a mom .... I know I still have much to learn as well though. The no's definitely are seen through different eyes ... though my humanity still questions when I know I shouldn't.
