life as it is seen from my heart and soul

the day after the BIG weekend.

oh my. Christmas 2017. 72 hours of being 5 under the roof. of laughter, conversations, reminiscing of Grandmas, hearing them sleeping, seeing them as adults. It happened too fast but this year ~ this holiday ~ these 72 hours ~ what a joy to my heart and blessing to my soul. I pray Proverbs 22:6 – Train up a child in the way he/she should go, and when he/she is old he/she will not depart from it. I also pray that no matter what they do in their life, may I be like Christ in loving them – with a generous and merciful heart and open hands of love. the three of them, pictured to the right, all grown ups, all adults ~ responsible for themselves, their life choices, their future.
I sit here with hot tea and frosted cookies (knowing I should be eating the carrot sticks) thinking of life in our little old home. It has cracked paint, windows needing replaced, a driveway needing repair. But we are warm & cozy, well fed in soul and body, clean water, and a God that has come to Earth as a babe in flesh. how can i ask for anything? I ask for the Spirit of the Lord to quicken my children’s hearts and souls – to remind them of where they came from – more than Earth, but of Heaven. I ask to be His messenger to others – that what I will say and do will matter only in Heaven and not on Earth.
I sent food with all three of them as they left – the usual – frosted cookies, thumbprints, snowballs, turtles, hot dog casserole, shrimp jambalya, ham, cranberry relish, cheesy potatoes, green bean casserole, presents. but daily I pray for manna from Heaven to fill them, that they will find their purpose in the King of Kings and they will know real Love in the Saviour.
May you be blessed this holiday season and know the Peace, Joy, Hope and Love of Christ in 2018!!!!
