There's been so much God can teach you about childlike faith when you are around littles. An older man came to fix our fridge the other day. He took one look at P and commented, "Oh, this one just hatched!" I laughed at the Andy Griffith-like quality and tone of this man dressed in overalls.

He pinned my baby though. She had just hatched. She's so fresh to life and this world and well, everything.

Last night, as P took a break from feeding, she was so sleepy she dropped her head a little. Josh walked by and joked that she was hanging her head---saying she was sorry she kept us up so long the night before. I joked back-- "Yeah, she feels guilty about that."

As soon as the words were said, I realized just how impossible that would be. She has no idea how to feel guilty. She couldn't feel it if she tried.

So today I'm questioning myself before I allow myself feel guilty about things unmerited of guilt. I'm noticing I think and feel guilty it more often than I thought. And so again, a fresh breeze of hope comes as I take note of a truth about how to have faith like a child: A baby cannot know guilt. 

The same is true for a child of God. No matter what kaleidoscope Satan puts in front of you. You are a child of God in which there is no condemnation.

Romans 8:1 "Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus."
