[The Lord your God] will rejoice over you with singing. - Zephaniah 3:17 (CEB)
I loved to rock my babies and grandbabies. My youngest daughter always enjoyed snuggling in my arms; with her many health concerns she often felt ill and needed comfort. I would wrap her in her favorite blanket, rock her, and softly sing “Jesus Loves Me.” She would settle down contentedly....
I can feel safe in God’s comforting embrace.

When we’re free to be real, that’s when the real joy comes.” Read more.
