Gentle . . . Gentle . . .

I remember the first time I was handed my newborn child.

"Gentle . . . gentle . . .", I said to myself.

I remember the first time someone had to help me by taking her from my arms so I could carefully get out of bed post c-section.

"Gentle . . . gentle . . .", they said to me.

Year's later, I remember handing my newborn son to my now 4 year old daughter as she sat in a chair in the hospital room.

"Gentle . . . gentle . . .", I said to her.

Gentle. Gentle.

Reminds me so much of my God.
Gentle when He gives.
Gentle through His people.
Gentle with us when give up something precious.

Gentle. Gentle. Lord, help me be more gentle.

Colossians 3:22 
Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience.
