Today was the last theme in Ragamuffin Gospel and I have also finished the book. I highly recommend it for anyone to read because it applies to all places of life. I learned mostly to draw near to Christ with every moment of my life.
Here was my favorite part:
"A father is delighted when his little one, leaving off his toys and friends, runs to him and climbs into his arms. As he holds his little one close to him, he cares little whether the child is looking around, his attention flitting from one thing to another, or if he's intent upon his father, or just settling down to sleep. The father doesn't care, because essentially the child is choosing to be with his father, confident of the love, the care, the security that is his in those arms."
We can trust in the Father's delight daily, running into his arms. We don't have to hide under our beds, in the closets, in deserted places to know that He isn't there, because He is everywhere. He will always want to embrace us.
Let us Trust in the One who loves recklessly.
