God has really ministered to my spirit this week, especially in light of studying Daniel and Babylon. We are living in a modern day Babylon. One of my earliest school memories is the bulletin board my Kindergarten teacher, Mrs. McManus, put up the first week of school. It had a giant lion and said, "Dare to be a Daniel." That is my prayer for my life. I want to be a Daniel. He outlived/outlasted many kings and rulers. Sometimes he was elevated, sometimes not. I am sure he was hated. But he kept doing the right thing day after day. May it be said of me!
And now, why am I missing babies??? My friend Angie posted this picture of her baby girl. I suppose it's the round face, chubby cheeks, toothless grin. It was enough to really make me miss having a baby at home. So, readers, what makes you miss having a baby? And if you do have a baby at home, what are you enjoying the most?
