Check-in At Night

A few nights ago, I went into the kids room to check on them.  What parent does not go check on their kids before they go to bed right?  My daughter moved, opened her eyes to look at me, rolled over and mumbled something to me.  Then at that moment, I had a flash back from when I was a child.  I still have vague memories of waking up in the middle of the night to have one my parents standing over me. 

Just in that instance, I realized that I was performing an action that had been done to me as a child.  It is amazing what you remember and it sometimes shocks my Mom of what I can remember.  She will sometimes say, "You remember that? You were just a little boy".  The good thing is that I remembered and I feel comfortable knowing that my children will have the same memories of my wife and I tucking them in late at night.

As adults, we have the memories of our parents, but no one comes to check in on us at night - well at least not in the physical.  Now we have a Father who is in heaven who checks in on us as parents.  In the morning when I wake up, I can know that it was God who took care and watched over me through the night.  For me, it feels good to know that even as an adult someone is still looking over you, no matter where you lay your head at night.

May the Lord continue to watch over each of you and may His grace and mercy continue to be sufficient throughout your day.

Be easy folks.
