A Child in the Father’s Arms

Eight days ago my family had the great joy of welcoming my new niece to the world. She is an 8 lbs. 4 oz. bundle of joy who although beautiful, is completely helpless without the care and attention of others.

Looking at the new pictures of my niece reminds me that God wants us to trust Him just as my niece trusts her mother and father. Therese in the Story of A Soul describes that, “Jesus deigned to show me the only road that leads to the divine furnace, and this is the road of the little child who falls asleep without fear in its father’s arms” (Story of A Soul, pp. 188).

My little niece already can show us the royal road to love!
