Duh

I’ve often wondered why I picture myself as a child sitting in God’s lap. I thought that picture would fade as I grow older, but it hasn’t. I’m always a little 5 yr.old girl no matter what we’re talking about. When I pray, I am leaned against Him & He patiently listens and cries with me if I cry, laughs when I happily tell Him something wonderful, and reprimands me when I need it. When I pray, I never see myself as I am now – I’m always that little girl. Suddenly, it dawned on me one day. (You know that over-used, one syllable “word” that was used a while back?…Duh.) That’s the word I said aloud when HE reminded where I was when I first heard how Jesus died for me. It was Christmas Eve & my grandfather had come to visit. As he & I were enjoying Christmas candy together, he asked me if I knew what Christmas was. I said what most 5 yr.olds say, “Yeah, Santa is coming!” Well, at that, he picked me up and sat me in his lap and told me the whole story from beginning to end. All of it – from His birth on -even the blood that ran down the cross onto the ground. How the earth shook because creation wept over it’s Creator. How He had only done good & loved everyone – even the soldiers who killed Him. He explained that all I had to do was believe & accept. That I did. I leaned against my grandfather’s flannel shirt & as I listened to his heartbeat, I wept because Jesus loved me that much. Right there, sitting in Grandaddy’s lap, He came into this little girl’s heart and stayed. We’ve been best friends ever since. So, I am content to stay in the Father’s lap until it’s time to see Him face to face. And…I am so glad my grandaddy loved me enough to tell me.

Becky: My Daughter, My Joy

Dear Becky,

I was going to write you a poem to tell you how proud i am of you, but i thought you deserved better. From the day you were born you have been my joy, I could not be more proud of you than I am today; To see the work that God has done in you and how he has blessed your life makes me so proud to call you my daughter. I can sit back today and tell you how much I love my nieces but when God gave me a daughter he gave me his very best. There is nothing about you that I would change. From the first time I held you in my arms you had stolen my heart, and as I sit here today I can honestly say you still hold it in your hands. I could pray for God to send you home but then I would only be interfering with His plan for your life, and that is not something I want to hinder. Instead I will choose to sit back and watch  the work in your life unfold. Your obedience to God’s word will always keep you blessed. I use to worry about you but I know God has put His angels in charge over you. I know when I close my eyes at night that His eyes are on you and you are going to be just fine.I want you to know that the distance between us will never change how much I love you and how proud I am of you. Nothing you do or accomplish goes unnoticed. My eyes are still on you just like they were when you were first born.and they still look at you with amazement. I AM ALWAYS IN AWE OF WHAT GOD MAY HAVE PLANNED FOR YOU.  Sometimes I think you are the only thing i did right in my life, so what ever it is you are doing please don’t stop. Remember where God has pulled you from and build on that.  And always remember that you are my daughter, my joy and I wouldn’t change that for anything in the world!

Love you forever

Your Mother
