Rocking Chairs

As I began this article I was writing in a rocker glider. I have been a rocking chair fan most of my life. My mom had one in our living room; and there were rockers on my grandparent’s porches. I believe babies are to be loved, fed, diapered, bathed, and ROCKED! I began babysitting at age eleven; and I have happily rocked many babies.


After my first child was born we picked up an old wooden rocker. A couple of years later our next child was born. One Christmas my husband’s parents gave me a beautiful small white rocker, with a cushioned back and seat. I was thrilled! In the past forty years there have been many rockers, some holding special memories.


I enjoy old movies, especially from the 1930-1950’s era. One of my favorite Christmas classics is “Christmas in Connecticut,” starring Barbara Stanwyck and Dennis Morgan. In one scene he demonstrated different methods and reasons for rocking. It’s a keeper!


The “Britannica World Language Dictionary” explains rocking in ways such as: “moving back and forth, to sway…to soothe, as to put to sleep.” We sing “rock-a-bye lullabies!” Now I understand the appeal of rockers; it is soothing to rock! The dictionary defines soothe: “to restore to calm, to a quiet or normal state.” Jesus, who “calmed” the raging sea, (Mark 4:39) is my Rock. He soothes me as He rocks me in His arms!

I love how you tied the rocking chair's soothing capabilities with our Rock. You amaze me with your ability to take everyday things and see the LORD's grace and love woven in. :)

The corner where my rocking chair sits is where my children "determine and identify" where Mommy is at at every moment. Often, they (the little ones)come sit on my lap to hear me read to them life and character-changing story books (and ont only one or two books!). With the older ones, they'd come and ask me things pertaining to life and the Truth, or just for a "little chat with Mommy." I bless God for these times. God bless you for writing, "Rocking Chairs". It has helped me see the significance of "Mommy in her rocking chair" to bless, and minister to my family; instead of just seeing my rocking chair as "my place of recluse for myself." Thank you.
