Toddlers come with activity, curiosity and a tinge of cheekiness. They fill you heart and your day. They can mush you to bits and in the same breath have you calling on heaven for a double portion of grace.
They Live. Love. Laugh.
I’ve been researching on toddler schedules to help us manage our time better and make the most of each day.
One of the activities currently on repeat in our home is molding with playdough. I used to make playdough, but it’d change consistency after some time. Then hubby found a gluten free alternative and I was super excited to start molding.
Initially when we got it out of the packet, the playdough was hard; but as we molded and manipulated it, it got softer, more malleable.
When God starts working on your heart it’s a bit rigid. As you let Him work on you day by day, it gets softer. It feels the things He feels and is moved by what moves His heart.
When you stick two colours together, a little of each remains on the other. The same is true about our interactions in life. When you interact with someone, they leave an impact on your life. What you expose yourself to leaves a little footprint on your heart.
This is why it’s important to guard your heart.
The beauty about crafting with playdough is that it is so versatile. The same piece can make hundreds of shapes and objects.
Our hearts were made to be soft, malleable, above all else, our hearts were made to feel. Life has a way of hardening us, but God still desires for our hearts to be soft and malleable; just like playdough.
