The Lorow family just returned from a relaxing, restful, lovely six-day vacation in Florida with my cute parents. It was the first time that Jeff and I have been on vacation since last March…when Adele was just an emerging bump in my mid-section and I was freaking out about having to wear maternity clothes. Amazing what a difference a year makes. I’m so grateful for my revised attitude.
On Thursday, as we were making our way to Florida by way of car (to Baltimore), shuttle van (to BWI), plane (to Tampa), subway-thingy (to baggage claim), and minivan with a new car seat (to condo), I couldn’t help but think about all the new experiences crowding Adele in just one day. What I found most amazing was her sweet ability to go with the flow, simply being carried, pushed, or strapped in from one destination to the next.
As long as she had Jeff and me, she was fine. She totally trusted that we wouldn’t let anything to happen her.
I’ve been thinking about this lots because I no longer trust anyone this unconditionally and completely (although I’m sure did when I, too, was just a babe). And, I’m pretty sure that God wants me to trust Him like this. What if I was willing to venture into all sorts of unknown terrorities with complete strangers simply because my heavenly Father was present and real and most worthy of my trust? Wow.
