And so I expected something along those lines today…
“Snoopy,” he said.
No, I thought – I’m snoopy, I must have heard that wrong. He corrected my thought immediately.
Yes, I am, he said. I am snoopy. Curious. Not to find fault, criticize, condemn or gossip, not to prove myself “holier than thou.”
But to search out and soothe areas of hurt, bruising, injury. Weakness.
Irritations? Aggravations? Annoyances? Soothe.
Resentments? Bitterness? Grief? Soothe.
Wounds? Cuts? Bruises? Soothe.
Soothe, and heal, and strengthen.
“The eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth to show himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is perfect towards him.” (II Chronicles 16:9 KJV)
And for my children, the eyes of the Lord run to and fro inward throughout the whole person, to show myself strong on behalf of that man or woman. On your behalf! To show myself a strong healer, comforter, soother.
I’m so glad! Yes, he is snoopy and I’m so very glad. I need that!
