So today was really stressful...We took Catherine to the mall this week so we could school shop with her....We had to take Jackson which was a chore in itself...He has so much energy, and wanted no part of any of the stores. It was not fun for any of us involved. I left him with Cat to watch him on the quarter cars while I went into Famous footwear with valerie.....when I came out 3 minutes later, Jackson was gone, and Catherine had no idea where he was!!! Talk about the worst feeling going through a mother's mind! I was frantically looking and calling his name. There were several other parents who were helping me.....when after what seemed like an eternity...(3 minutes at the most), someone came and started pointing around the corner...I raced around the corner, and he wasn't there....so I kept going....there he was in the entrance of Dillards.....with the perfume ladies stopping him from going further! Security was called off and my little boy was safely in my arms! What a relief! I'm so grateful that we found him safely and that he was in my arms again! It made me think of how God is waiting and wanting us to come home to Him safely! We are all here to be tested and tried...there are some of us who will be "lost" along the way.....If the rest of us all "frantically" seek to find each other as we did with Jackson, we can all find each other to bring us all safely back to our Master.
I hope that we can all be good shepherds so we can find our lost brothers and sisters!
