Tenderness.....

There are times in your life or your life, as a mother especially, when you have to allow one (or all) of your children to be hurt. And that hurts you even more. So deeply. I have always been very maternal. I am so tender towards the needs of my daughters and now my grand daughter. I cry when they cry. I even cry when I hold little Piper and just behold that tiny precious face. I am crying right now. This weekend my youngest girl was so hurt by things that I knew would hurt her but couldn't really stop. It isn't that I didn't want to stop this pain but if I had intervened it would have happened later and could have been much worse on her. I wanted to stop this hurtful thing but instead I prayed all weekend for that child. I even woke out of a sound sleep early Sunday morning at around 3 and prayed for her. As hard as it is (believe me, it is hard) for me to not interfere every time, I knew this time God would show her some things. Things that just broke her heart and really made her just cry. It just breaks my heart to see my girls upset. I still want to gather them up in my lap and kiss them and hug them until the pain subsides. Below is a song about our God who will do that very thing. He is so tender towards His children. I love that about Him....I really, really do.
