Dear Little Water Splasher (from Someone Who Loves You series)

Dear Little Water Splasher,

I knew you were out of your comfort zone. The river is much larger than the small inflatable pools you’re used to. And the water is continually moving; the constant flow of the waves might have been a bit unsettling. But the worst seems to have been the inability to see through the water. Did you think dangerous things were hiding in there?  Did you think  the muddy bottom would suck you deep into it, never letting you go? Or did you think there was no bottom at all? You had two choices, and I’m delighted you chose trust over fear. As long as you were being held, you were able to ignore the unknown that scared you and go willingly into something new. By trusting the strong arms that held you securely, you had great fun interacting with the water. Do you know something? Life is like that river. It’s big, constantly moving, and contains many unknowns. You can remain in your comfort zone and stay distant from it out of fear, or allow yourself to be carried out of your comfort zone and into a new adventure, knowing you’ll be secure in the arms that carry you there. Splash all you want, my little duck. You are safe.

From,

Someone Who Loves You

Dear Little Weed Puller,

Look at you, so focused on pulling those weeds. You are not overwhelmed with the large number of weeds around you. You are not worried that the job is too big for you. You are not frustrated because they are delaying your walk. You saw a need, and you stopped to take care of it, secure in the knowledge that I was there watching over you. You didn’t know, but you brought a delightful smile to my heart. And for that, I thank you.

As Always,

Dear Little Traveler,

Where are you going? Can I come, too? There are so many places I want to show you. But you will need help getting there. I can be the power that keeps you moving. You can sit in the driver’s seat, and turn the wheel. You can think that you are in control, but what you don’t know is that my hand, the one that is pushing you, is actually the one guiding you. I push you where I want you to go. And I push you how fast or slow I want you to go. That way you will stay safe. And together, we will go to many fascinating places. Ready? Let’s go!

Powerfully,

Someone Who Loves You

Dear Little Generous One,

You make me so proud when I see you trying to share your things with others. You have such a kind heart. There will be people who will look at you with distrust. They might even reject you. But it’s not important how they react to your offer. What’s important is what I think of your offer. And I think it’s awesome! Keep on giving, my small one! You delight me each time!

Proudly,

Someone Who Loves You

Dear Little Oops,

I see you trying so hard. You worked at getting the oatmeal on the spoon, and then to get it to your mouth – just to have it fall off at the last minute. You look at where it landed and wonder if you will ever get it right. And you may even feel bad about yourself. But don’t you see? You already have mastered it in my eyes! You may not be able to see it, but I can. I KNOW you will get this, in time. Look how far you have progressed! Look at all that you CAN do! Don’t compare yourself to those you see around you. Enjoy where you are and don’t worry about the messes. Sometimes the oatmeal just fall offs of the spoon. And it’s okay. I can and will clean you up every time.

Love,

Someone Who Loves You

Dear Two-Fist Grabber,

Your pleasure of what I have delights me. Go ahead, reach for as much as you can. I have more than you can imagine. Many people see what I offer yet not all reach out. And many of those who do feel they should only take a few. But not you, my love. You grab with both hands! And that brings me great pleasure!

Always and Forever,

Someone who loves you

Dear Little Book Worm,

Your interest in books brings such joy to me. They open up worlds to you that would not otherwise be possible. So many things to see, places to visit, and concepts to learn. One day soon you will discover the greatest book of all – the Bible. It, too, will open up a whole new world to learn about. But even better than that, it will help you get to know the One who loved you enough to make sure you came to be. Read on, Little One, and discover the wonders all around you!

As Always,

Someone Who Loves You

Dear Caged One (From Someone Who Loves You Series)

 

Ever wonder why there are boundaries in your life? Are they there because someone enjoys seeing you get frustrated? Maybe someone is unhappy and wants you to be unhappy too, keeping you from all the fun things on the other side? Or maybe because they don’t want to bothered by you? Or maybe it’s an unfair challenge they want you to conquer?

Or maybe boundaries are there to keep you safe. Safe from the 15 steep steps going down to the first floor. And from the large white rambunctious dog down there that could accidentally hurt you.

Instead of looking at where you can’t go, turn around and look at where you can go. Like to the things to climb on and the big box of toys to play with and the books to look at. And the person up there with you who is always ready and eager to hold you and love you and play with you.

All you have to do is turn around.

Always,

Someone who loves you
