Tuesday's Grand Connection Thought
by Mary May Larmoyeux
Do you have a favorite rocking chair? I do. It's the one that I rocked our children in, and then the grandchildren. It's made of heavy wood, I think oak, and I actually paid one dollar for it more than thirty years ago at an auction. It was probably the best buy I ever made!
Sandra Marshall, wrote about her rocking chair, and I thought you'd enjoy what she said:
I'm moving to my new smaller home today. Some of this stuff just has to be left behind because it won't fit. I'll take this rocking chair though. It has scars on the back from the kitten's claws and teeth marks on the arm from my grandson. I need it.
The rocking chair has given me a place to rest so many times—early morning devotions, late night teething sessions, Sunday afternoon visits with my grandmother, and watching sunsets all alone after my husband died.
Over and over again, God has wrapped His arms around me and rocked me gently to a realization that wherever I am in the world, He is with me and He is enough.
I really like what she wrote! I had never thought about God wrapping His arms around me and rocking me in the trials of life.
What about you? Do you have a special rocking chair?
Have a great week,
