Dear Little Adventurer,
Just look at those little feet! So tiny, yet they have all the bones, ligaments, muscles, and tendons as adult feet – everything you’ll need to walk, run, jump and dance when you get older. What potential in such an amazingly small package! I can see them pedaling a tricycle, heading full speed to destinations that aren’t important as you exalt in pure motion. I can see them lifting you up to reach something just out of reach. I can see them running without restraint as you race to your father’s embrace. And I can see them kicking wildly in a pool, soaking everyone around you. What fun you will have with them!
Your marvelous, perfect feet! I wonder where they will take you one day. Will you be a dancer? A mountain climber? A marathon runner? Will you use them to help people in need? Will they take you to exotic and exciting places? I can’t wait to hear about all the journeys your feet will take you!
Above all, I hope they keep you on the path of the One who loves you most – and if they happen to stray, that they will bring you quickly back.
Someone who loves you
Psalm 44:18 Our hearts had not turned back; our feet had not strayed from your path.
Psalm 18:33 He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he causes me to stand on the heights.
Proverbs 4:26 Give careful thought to the paths for your feet and be steadfast in all your ways.
Isaiah 52:7 How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, “Your God reigns!”
These letters have double meaning. On the surface they are letters I’m writing to my granddaughter. But they are also letters God is writing to you. Reread them, replacing the greeting with your own name, and the closure with God’s name – and get to know the great love God has for you!
