"This is the Day that the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it" Psalm 118:24
We should rejoice in every day, but sometimes it's easier than others. This was a day to rejoice. A day to thank God for pouring out his blessings upon us! It was a day to stand back and realize that God is Good and the love we have for our children is His way of giving us even a glimpse of His deep love for us. I didn't even begin to understand the love of Christ had for me until I had a child.
Saturday we went to the zoo. It was wonderful. We got there early, so we could see the sites before it got busy. The monkeys were the favorite, but the kangaroos came in a close second! Cinderella and I both tire easlily so we skipped "Africa" and went for the the water area next. Cinderella laughed and ran and played so hard, she couldn't keep her eyes open through lunch. It was a gift to watch your child feel be so carefee, so full of life and so energetic. I love her more everyday. It makes every day a gift, and I truly do rejoice in it!
