Today we came home from running errands. Kason fell asleep in the car but woke up the moment we came inside. I needed to get Judson and Kiva to bed for naps so Jada tried to give Kason his paci in his car seat and rock him...but he was so upset and was not easily pacified. After I put Judson down, I got Kason out of his car seat, swaddled him and gave him to Jada in the middle of my bed (while I finished putting Kiva down). I encouraged Jada that Kason will most likely cry because he may be getting hungry but I will hurry as best I can. She was happy to hold her very upset little brother.
As I was climbing the stairs to get to Kiva, I began hearing Jada sing "I lift my eyes up, unto the heavens, where does my help come from..." Precious....
When I returned from putting Kiva down, Kason was perfectly peaceful and asleep in Jada's arms while tears were streaming down her face as she said "I don't know what I would do without him." And then she said she sang to him and he began to rest and then she was praying for him to love God with his whole heart. "That he would be a wonderful man of God and that when he has kids, he would teach them about God."
Tears in this mom's eyes for sure. Thank you, Jada. You invest yourself well. Luke 6:38 "Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you." May it be over your life, precious Jada!
