Reaching Down

I got to spend the week with my granddaughter and daughter in law recently.  I will openly admit I am totally smitten with this child.  I thought my own children taught me things…but this girl has already taught me plenty in ten months.

She is desperately trying to crawl.  When she has had enough she turns over on her back and waits for someone to pick her up.

I walked right by her the other night only to have my daughter-in-law remind me what she was waiting for.  I had walked past her and she had noticed.  It broke my heart when I realized she had be waiting on me.

I went back to her and her expression is one I will always remember.  I stood above her and put my hands out.  She got so excited.  Her sounds, her giggle, her expression is something that will stay with me forever.  

Is that how I act when the Father reaches down to pick me up?  Am I excited to be rescued out of the crazy position I have put myself in?

I do know one thing though, the love I have for this child does not compare to the love God has for His children.  He reaches down with love and cherishes His time with us more than we can possibly imagine…even more than I do with my granddaughter.

All this from reaching down and picking up our “Little Miss Sunshine.”  Trust me, I did not ignore her again.

Simple Feet

Simple Feet

I don’t like feet, except my granddaughter’s feet of course.  But once those feet start walking I may change my mind.  I cannot even stand to touch my own feet so you can imagine how pedicures go! Continue reading

Grey Skies and Sunshine

I will be the first to admit that I am not terribly fond of grey days.  It seems there have been more of them this winter than usual.  At least it seems that way.

I had to run errands today and was on a parking lot lamenting yet another grey sky.

I looked up and all around was grey, grey and more grey.  I rolled the cart to the bay and turned back around saunter back to my grey-blue car.

“Look Up.”  Two simple words in my spirit that had my eyes turning up over a building.

It was there.  The sun. I even took a picture.

It was not shining brightly, nor was it truly recognizable.  But it was there.

Behind the grey, the hurting, the pain, the rain, the storm, the winds that blow….the Sun was still there.

Yes, it was hard to see.  But it was that gentle reminder I personally needed so badly.  Life can get tough sometimes, and you can feel like you are totally surrounded by grey.

But Look Up.  You might just see a glimpse behind that cloud.  

A reminder that He is right there in the midst of it all.
