Look, Really Look!

Justin: Mommy, mommy, look, mommy, are you looking? Mommy, mommy, look!"
Me, only one foot away: I am looking. (Not really, though, but I still know what is going on.)
Justin: LOOK! MOMMY! Watch this!
Me: I am looking. I can still see what you are doing.
God: Does this sound familiar? I have promised you that I will always be looking, that I will always be with you, that I will always see you. But you still feel better when I tell you I'm looking. So stop what you are doing and look at your child, just like I do for you.


  1. Thank you for this! Very direct, very good!

  2. was just thinking of a twist on this...

    How many times do we do this to God? He says, "Look, really Look" and we say "uh huh, yep"...

    Can we say "ouch"?
