Zane and Steph and I went to Qdoba for lunch yesterday. Zane, who just turned 20 months old yesterday, is learning to hold an adult’s hand while crossing streets and parking lots, and not go running off. So he had ahold of my hand with one hand, and his momma’s hand with the other, as we were crossing the parking lot from the car to the restaurant.
He jumped the whole way across, while giggling. Having two adults holding your hands on either side of you means you can jump so much higher, and get some swinging in besides before hitting the ground again.
The kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these. Zane didn’t think about whether he could trust his Momma and Nana before leaping up, he just did it for the sheer joy of it. Kind of like how I can trust the Lord without analyzing everything to death. Thank you for reminding me of what’s really important in life, Zane. 🙂
