one of the things i love most about the continuous setting on my camera is that it captures moments like this that happen to quickly for me to notice in totality. what i thought was simple game of 'airplane' was actually a lesson in trusting. and in turn the freedom that it brings. as she settled firmly on my size 11's, she slowly began to let go and experience the freedom of knowing i'd catch her should she wobble. what was scary at first, suddenly had the beauty to take her breath away and make her insides turn in delight.
i realized quickly as i looked at my uploaded pictures that this very simple childhood game also held the same lesson in trusting that i need to be reminded of. i thought my feet were big, but His are bigger. my reflexes are pretty quick should a wobble occur, but He orchestrates the wobbles. my arm span is far reaching, His is infinite. and as His child i have the freedom that trusting brings as well. the breathtaking, beautiful, inside turning, soul delighting freedom.
thank you Father for Jesus. and for airplane.
