Precious (according to dictinary.com)
- of high price or great value; very valuable or costly
- dear; beloved
These were just a few that I noted from the definition. So true. Children require so much and yet so little all at the same time. Tonight I sat on the floor, kneeling next to Tristen, just stroking her hair and praying the fainting would pass. A regular occurrence after a long day. (see this post) Knowing that there is little I can do to make her feel any better, but I would take the pain myself if I could. Praying that God's grace would make it pass quickly, all the well knowing that she must feel awful.
These precious children that God has given to us. I am willing to pay the high price that it takes to raise them. They are so dear and beloved to me. How thankful I am that they have a safe, loving home. I am thinking of all those orphans who are waiting to go home to a permanent family.
And yet, I am again reminded, that God loves them even more. They are more precious to Him than to me. Something my mind can hardly comprehend.
