HE Is Never Too Busy

Yesterday, Mariah (age 5) was struggling as she read her book.   This book was a little more difficult than the ones she had been reading.  I wasn't the most patient of mothers.  I tried to multi-task as she read to me.

She kept saying, "Mommy, are you listening?"  I responded, "Yes honey, I just have so much to do.  I really need to you to read faster ."

She eventually finished the book; and as she walked away, she sweetly said, "Jesus helped me finish the book."

She knew that when nobody else seemed to be listening or paying attention, Jesus is the perfect listener and teacher.  I was humbled as I realized the miracle of Jesus as my forever best friend who is never too busy to listen and to help.
