I can pick him up and WALK. That's amazing! I provide the nourishment that he wants (pretty much all the time) as well as all the loves and cuddles he craves. The toys I put in front of him are absolutely fascinating. And thank goodness I know where to get those dry diapers!
Hunter's 23rd Psalm (My Apologies to King David)
My mom is my hero, I shall not be in want.
She makes me lie down to take a nap,
Even when I don't think I need it,
She fills my soul.
She sings me soothing songs,
She tells me about Jesus.
Even though I'm sometimes really cranky,
I will not be afraid, because Mom is always there.
Your hugs and kisses, they comfort me.
You provide me with warm milk
whenever I need it.
Sometimes my belly does run over
(Sorry about that).
Surely goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of my mommy
So after I came back from this ego trip, I got to thinking...God wants us to approach him like a child - just like Hunter. He wants us to prefer Him to all others, to light up with a grin when we're in His presence. We should turn to Him for the comfort we need.
Then it occurred to me, that as much as I love Hunter-man (which is a whole bunch, I assure you), God loves me even more. He loves me so much that He sent His baby Hunter to die for me. Can't really get my brain around that, but I'm so thankful He did!
