Disneyland through the eyes of a 4-year-old
Today I took little EZ Luna to Disneyland. I promised him months ago that I would take him and God opened up my schedule to do so today. Besides, it was a nice break from a week back to work, and the new year looming ahead of me. I picked him up at Arms' place. I could tell he was excited to go; I was just as excited.
When we finally got there, we both walked excitedly to the front gate. He held out his pass; I held out mine and we were finally in! Today was Ezekiel's day out. He got to choose the rides (all the round and round rides) and what he wanted for dinner. As we were walked down Main Street hand in hand, I got to thinking about my future. At that moment, I became very excited for that one day, Lord willing, when I could take my own little one to Disneyland. This person would not just be on "loan" for the night. One day the Lord will bless me with a little son or daughter and I could spend precious moments with them at the "Happiest Place on Earth." I'm really excited for this special day. I know that this may happen many years from now, but it gets me excited to think about what God's planning to do in my life.
On the way home from our fun-filled stay at Disneyland, EZ started to sing a song. I'm not quite sure if he just made it up, or if it is an actual song. He kept singing, "His love is bigger than the dinosaur..." I turned off my radio and allowed the car to be filled with this young boy's voice. Thank you, Lord for a great day at Disneyland and for your love being bigger than a dinosaur. Because of this, I smile.
