Tonight on the way home from great dinner and fellowship with friends I heard a song on the radio that brought a childhood memory to mind. At one point in the song the words go "Father hold me, hold me" . As I heard this the memory when a was about 4 or 5 years old popped into my mind of sitting on my Pappy's lap. I loved sitting on his lap when they would come visit me. We even have home movies of me sitting on my Pappy's lap. I felt so special my Pappy holding me on his lap.
So this got me to thinking......
I love being with children. The littler the better. I love cuddling with them. I love holding them and having a chat. I started thinking about when does a child wants to be held and what they feel. I child like to be held to be close to you. I child like to be held to feel secure. A child likes to be held for comfort when they don't feel well. I child likes to be held to have your full attention. A child likes to be held for your strengh when they are tired.
I came to this conclusion I want my Father to hold me. Hold me Lord.
