I woke up this morning around five and Eli was holding my hand. I love it when something makes you smile the minute your brain reaches consciousness. We came through Tulsa on our way to Eureka Springs to meet up with several of our church family to see the Passion play. We will be home on Saturday in time for Michael to preach Sunday morning and have our harvest carnival Sunday night.
After about a month of being in "retreat mode", I think after Monday I can breathe a little easier.
A couple of weeks ago Kayla came to Texas to take the girls to a Taylor Swift concert. She brought Eli and Journey and didn't get in until close to midnight. When Eli walked sleepy-eyed in the door he ran for me and put his arms tight around my neck. Then he pulled back and said, "Lollie, were you saying over and over 'I can't for Eli to get here!'?"
I assured him I said that very thing over and over. It was truth.
He loves that I love him.
We don't see them often, so when we do we love on them from the time they walk in the door until we strap them in the seat to head north.
You know what else is truth? Sometimes the busyness of being woman with all that entails, keeps me from spending that time with the Lord I desperately need. I feel like He is waiting in anticipation for me to come to His table, to sit at His feet.
Fill up to satisfaction. Be loved, in whatever condition I am.
I love that He loves me.
