The way this fawn approached its mother was charming. A natural bond between them was strengthened by their interplay and touch. Out of their sight in the car, I watched as they relaxed, content in their safety. I enjoyed capturing these moments of trust.
There is a pure love that holds parent & child together: and if that purity is compromised the damage is serious.
It seemed to me that our relationship with our Eternal Father God ought to reflect the same pure love. We are created in the image of God, to be like Him: and He IS love.
In such love as this we exist, serve, and rest. This love naturally overflows from our hearts- in being blessed, we become a blessing. The Bible is quite clear about who we should love. The list includes the young and old, the bereaved, the orphaned, the weak and the strong, ourselves- and even our enemies. Such a love means it is worth keeping our attention on God, our Love-Giver; this should be our greatest treasure.
May we, this week, receive pure love from our Heavenly Father- and pass it on to all who need love in their lives.
“As the deer pants for the water, so my soul thirsts after You.”
