That Daddy Connection

Since my son Connor gets a little sad when his dad leaves for work, we have gotten in the habit of putting a touch of daddy's cologne on his neck. Then, when he is missing him, he can breathe deep and smell that "Daddy smell." This morning was extra traumatic because Daddy has to work past bedtime tonight. We used a little extra scent to get Connor through the day, until Daddy comes home.

Our Daddy has done the same for us through the Holy Spirit.

"Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you." John 14:27

Breathe deep. Let yourself be filled with His scent until He comes home for us.

    Very insightful! I wish my mom would have thought of that when I cried whenever my dad went out on a job at night.
