Praying Without Ceasing and the Language of Love

Watching my five-year-old grandson interact with my son,
a.k.a. “Daddy” close behind:

Entering unexplored territory:

“Daddy?”
“Yes, Theodore.”

Climbing up the ladder on a slide, which turned out to be a bit higher and steeper than it looked:

(Grunting) “D-a-d-d-y-?”
(Ready to catch him) “Y-e-s, Theodore.”

Emerging safe and victorious at the bottom of the same slide:

“Daddy!”
(Congratulating) “Yes! Theodore!”

Fording the shallow creek that runs through the area:

“Daddy?????”
(Watchfully) “Yes, Theodore!!!

Theodore wandering off limits:

“________”
(Daddy, somewhat sternly) “T-h-e-o-d-o-r-e ?!?!”

All tired out and ready to go home:

(Arms lifted up and out-stretched): “Daddy!?!”
(Taking Theo into his arms and carrying him home):

“Y-e-s-s-s, Theodore …”

1st Thessalonians 5:17  Pray without ceasing. 

Mark 10:15-16  Amen I say to you, whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall not enter into it. And embracing them and laying his hands upon them, he blessed them.

Galatians 4:6  And because you are sons, God hath sent the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying: Abba, Father. (a.k.a. “Daddy”).
