He Wants To

I've said it several times in the last few days . . . "and when I see Him, face to face, I long to hear Him say, 'well done, my good and faithful servant . . . enter . . .' " That is what really matters to me!

"Well done, good job, you did it, you make me smile, I am pleased, thank you , YOU LIVED . . . enter."

He longs to speak those words over us!

When my children were little ones perched around our kitchen table, eating food prepared by my hands, earned by his, blessed by Grace, my husband would say, "good supper, momma!" as he pushed his chair away from the table. Almost every meal.

Made me smile every time.

A few times, he forgot. Taking his hand and resting my head on his shoulder I would nudge his thoughts with a whisper, "please say it". Grinning he would repeat the familiar phrase he loved to say and I loved to hear.

The Lord will not forget . . . He will remember much that we have forgotten . . . because it is His nature to want us to know  . . . that He is pleased and blessed.

Lord, what might I do to make you smile today?

My friend, how did you know that I have been thinking about you? And how have you been? I visited a couple times over the holiday but saw you were taking a break. I am a terrible visitor these days, but I think of you so often. I will never forget how you blessed me when we met.

I am sending so much love to you :).

It's been so long since I've been in touch with you. Your grandson is adorable! I look forward to seeing some updated pictures soon. You may have some on Facebook, but I've been off of that for almost a year now.

God Bless you as you continue to write & share with others what God lays on your heart.
