Be Still And Know

Reilly had to write some prayer cards for school.  She was sitting at the table asking what to write about. I told her to write about whatever she thought she should pray for more often.  She thought a little bit, started vigorously writing, and then put her cards in her folder.  I asked her if I could see one. She told me, "ok but only one."  She pulled out the card and this is what it read:

Reilly is just about the sweetest thing ever.  But she is very 'old' for her age.  She's always been very involved with Meagan from day one.  She was the one who would ask technical questions, want to know what Hydro was, and always asks me each day "So, how did Meagan do in Therapy today?"   All the girls love and dote on Meagan in their own way...but Reilly is a little bit like her Guardian.  She plays with her, talks to her, encourages her, sings to her, and prays with her.

I don't know how I was lucky enough to be entrusted with these five little lives. I don't know how my oldest ended up being such a deep caring soul....or how her bond with Meagan is so incredible....or how she is constantly looking out for her baby sister.  But I do know that every time I am privileged enough to witness the kindness and love Reilly gives to Meagan, I can be still and know that God is near...for He planned their bond before they knew it existed.
