Oh how much it sucks to know the suffering of your child. Elijah has a chest cold and he is miserable. His poor little lungs are full of mucous that is finally breaking up, but he's having a hard time sleeping from coughing so much and he's hoarse from his throat hurting from coughing. My poor little boy.
This can only give me a small glimpse into what God must have felt when Jesus was on the cross- He watched His Son endure so much pain and suffering and there was nothing He could do about it, for it must be done.
Lord, may we never take for granted the Gift that You have given us in Your Son Jesus! May we always look to His life, death and ressurrection with awe and thanksgiving for the amazing thing He did.
