I’ve been tagged

The rules:
1. Delve into your blog archive.
2. Find your 23rd post (or closest to).
3. Find the fifth sentence (or closest to).
4. Post the text of the sentence in your blog along with these instructions. Ponder it for meaning, subtext or hidden agendas
5. Tag five people to do the same. ”

“My little girl is the sweetest little thing. She is so full of life. Her smile can turn mr. grumpy pants,into a happy camper. She has no worries. She doesn’t question whether or not, her mommy or daddy are going to be there when she needs us. She isn’t concerned with name brands, and nice cars. No, her life is centered on her parents love.

Jesus told a story about children, and how we are to be like them to enter the kingdom of Heaven. Nine months of watching my daughter has opened up this Scripture.”

Here is my 23rd post or so, and the fifth sentence is, ” She doesn’t question whether or not, her mommy or daddy are going to be there when she needs us.”

Now I am to look for meaning, subtext, or hidden agenda. Hmm, contextually I was writing about my oldest daughter, Rachel. I think this came at a time in our lives when I was overwhelmed with financial matters, and I was astounded by how little my daughter worries about whether or not her daddy is going to take care of her. She rests in the assurance of her child like trust in me, and I realize more than ever as a parent and as a follower of Christ, the way my daughter sees me is how I need to view my Jesus.

Children certainly are great teachers.

I am supposed to tag five people:
1. Milton Stanely
2. Mike Cope
3. Patrick Meade
4. Fred Peatross
5. Brian Burkett
