Whew! I'm tired! I have had a long day, a good one, but long. I've been so excited that my daughter started walking... but that also means she can choose to walk away from me now. And choose to throw her sweet little self on the floor when her mom tells her not to do things like put her hands in the toilet..... My world has now turned into being a hawk, watching out for what she will do that may hurt her. She doesn't know that stepping off deck without going down the stairs will hurt her, or that ovens are hot or any of those things.

I was asking some girlfirends today.... why do we make it so hard on ourselves? We DO know what is bad for us and what our Father wants from us but we still choose to do things that in the long run will hurt us. Why do we do this? Our selfish nature wants what we want and we choose to not think about the consequences.

But PRAISE the Lord that just like I love my daughter and will teach her over and over, our Father loves us. Even more! (remember Judy's post?) Thank you LORD for loving me and loving me and then loving me still...
