Saturday night, the girls were in the bathtub together. And, having a grand time! Emily had the idea that she wanted me to blow bubbles, so I got out our little battery-operated bubble maker and started producing lots of bubbles.
Oh, the squeals and giggles of delight that erupted after this! The joy was contagious! Not only was my face smiling, but so was my heart.
It just brought me such joy and pleasure to create an opportunity for them to laugh like that! To know that a moment in their day was bright and joyful and to be part of creating happy childhood memories for them.
Then my mind went further, if I as a parent love to create these moments for my children - what about God who is my Heavenly Father? He is the creator of joy, laughter and fun! Does He get as much joy out of watching me enjoy life and delight in His creation?! Yes, I think He does.
So, just as I care if my children are happy and that I create moments where they can have fun and laugh - God cares too about His children!
