Today was a big day for our little girl who has been wanting her ears pierced for some time now. She happened to get a pair of earrings from her Aunt for her birthday but couldn't wear them , for she doesn't have holes for them to go into. Well, we decided that she was big enough to get them done. All night she was excited, then all morning she wanted to GO, GO, GO to get them done. Oh the anticipation!! We got to the Mall, walked to The Piercing Pagoda, then suddenly fear set in.
" Will it hurt?"
"Well, let's watch this person and see what you think first "
"Well it was fine for them... so maybe I will be alright", she said.
"You'll be okay honey we'll be right here with you"
She wanted to hold my hand during the process, yet you could still see on her face, a touch of fear for the unknown. They decided to pierce them at the same time to get it over with. Holding tightly to my hand they pierced her sweet baby ears... she didn't really cry til after the fact. She said " It wasn't that bad after all" It's the fear of not knowing or trusting.
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths." (Proverbs 3:5)
"The fear of man brings a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord shall be safe." (Proverbs 29:25)
