The past few months has taught me to slow down and cherish the simple things of life.
Like the glow of Christmas lights on a tree that still standing decorated in the living room.
The sound of my husband's voice when he speaks to me but even more when he prays over me!
The sound of Christians giggle when she gets tickled and her laughter fills the air.
The phone call from Amber to just let me know they are okay!
I can hear my sweet guys in the background!
The morning spent facetiming so I can see their sweet faces!
Andrew letting me know everyone is okay! Just because he loves me!
My Moms sweet voice one the phone each day!
A phone call or text from my bestie just to check on me! brightens my whole day that out of her busy life she had time to check on me!
Today I thought about all of those sweet things things! A smile crossed my my face! I feel so blessed by so many things!
It did make me wonder if my Daddy is the same way about us! When we include Him in each and every aspect of our lives! Not just the moments I need Him to fix me!
I knew the answer was yes! It makes me want to be more intentional to make Him smile and be proud of me!
I want to know when I start my morning off with quiet time with Him He is smiling because I made Him priority!
I want Him to smile when a praise and worship song is a stuck in my head and I hum it in praise toward Him and it was Thursday! I didn't need a special day to do it on!
I want to know He smiles when I just babble off my head to Him like He is a old friend and it's just things I need to tell Him something that is on my heart! Nothing is wrong I just want to share it with Him! He smiles because I know He wants to talk to me all day everyday! It doesn't have to be some big formal prayer! He loved me and He just wants me to include Him in everything I do!
I want to be sure I am! Life will become busy again one day! Covid numbers will go down and life will resume some form of normalcy once again.
I have been praying because one thing I don't want to loose is the enjoyment in the simple things. Especially getting so busy that I leave my Daddy out on the sideline! He deserves front and center attention! I also don't want to lose the simplicity of it just being us! Family is so important to me! I feel that way more now than ever!
