That afternoon when I heard the kids out for recess I looked out my office window and searched for Cooper on his first day of school. When I finally spotted him I couldn’t help but smiled. He was so beautiful and I felt so proud that he was my son. I wished so badly that he knew that I was close by and watching him. I thought that might help comfort him as he felt so alone on his first day of school. As I watched him I realized that I loved seeing him play and it made me happy to see him having fun. And then, all of a sudden he looked sad, and my heart broke into a million pieces.
As I stood there watching Cooper I couldn’t help but think about God watching us, His children. When He looks down and sees you He smiles and He is so proud that you are His child. You are so beautiful to Him. He loves watching you when you are happy and playing. And then, when you are sad, it breaks His heart into a million pieces.
God wants you to know you’re not alone today. He sees you and smiles. God is good.
