Lessons from baby Lili

Sometimes I feel like Lili

Wanting what is familiar

Thinking I need stimulation

Yet actually needing rest

I arch my back and cry loudly

Wanting someone to jump and run

I try to keep steadily in motion

Busy . . . active . . . distracted

When what I need is to be still and know

That I am safe and secure

With His hand holding mine

Hearing His voice

Letting my whole body relax in His arms

Feeling His peace

Letting His voice calm me
