A Cup of Water

by Kelly Crawford

What do my children see?

In me?

How do I wear my Father’s love?

Do they see real love? (Love not in word only, but in deed and truth.)

My daughter needs a drink of water…seems she needs a lot of drinks of water.

Do I stop what I’m doing? Is it a bother? She’ll know.

I get up from my chair. How could I perceive it as an interruption? God forgive me.

“Here my love”…(even a cup of cold water in My name will be rewarded.)

He was right.

That smile…the reward I see.

And maybe one I can’t.

I really needed this. Thank you. There are so many times I have responded like I am being bothered when I shouldn’t be.
