I just wanna spend time with her!

“I just want to spend time with her!” Those words were uttered by both my girls within the same 30 minutes.

It was early, a good 45 minutes before their normal wake up time. It’s Saturday morning, but really days of the week don’t seem to matter right now with school canceled & me not working outside the home these days.

My heart squeezed as my daughters both said those words.

As we laid snuggled up in bed, me squooshed in between their sweet little bodies, I felt honored.

Then I felt suffocated. Physically, not mentally.

But before I started feeling panicky by my inability to move, I thought about how wonderful those words made me feel.

And how wonderful must those words make my Heavenly Father feel.

When was the last time I thought those words? Lord I just wanna spend time with you!

He longs to spend time with me.

He longs to spend time with you.

My girls decided to get up & play Barbies in their room.

I shuffled into the dining room with my devotional.

I sat at my scarred & marked up table (which I love but drives my hubby crazy. I see those marks as a history of sort. Drawing, painting, coloring, maybe even driving a match box car or 2, but he sees it totally different. But that’s a post for another day!)

I began today’s devotion. I took a quick glance at the clock because I was curious to see how long the peaceful playing would last.

I spent some time reading about trusting Him.

Reading about whispering, speaking, shouting my trust in Him when in the midst of turmoil. His promise that He will help me echoed in my mind. I tried to tuck that away for future moments.

And time’s up.

In case your curious, peaceful play lasted 10 minutes. But it is peaceful again because one has her Fruity Pebbles (don’t judge me, we are in the middle of a Pandemic.). The other has her strawberries, Colby jack cheese & mini Club crackers. It’s their go to every morning,

And me, I’m sipping on some Dr. Pepper & looking forward to the gravy my mother in law next door is fixing in a couple of hours.

I’m thankful for those few minutes of time spent with Him.

I’m thankful for the chance to jump on my blog & share my thoughts with you.

And I’m thankful for a few more minutes of peace before someone needs something else.

I thankful to be needed so very much in this season.

I’m thankful my Jesus longs to spend time with me.

I thankful that I caught the fact that auto correct seems to think Jesus Kong’s is a better phrase than Jesus longs. What in the world.

I’m thankful for you!

You are so loved!

PS I grabbed this picture as I was doing my devotional. Don’t mind the easels, we are in school all day long around here it seems! Teachers are so not paid enough.
