Good Morning, God!
I awoke to find Kit down watching tennis at Wimbledon. Later he and Suz will enjoy chatting about it.
As for me, God, there is something delicious about two slow sabbath days ahead! Days to pray and putter about.
Praying again and again, God, for our dear Lum Family in far off Swaziland. And praying, too, for our beloved grandson Ian in Arizona. Ian has been brave enough to go off to a Young Life camp — but he finds noise and excitement deeply distressing because of his hypersensitivities. I remember going with Sandy and Ian and Mark to Ian’s Audio Integration treatments. Those treatments did help reduce Ian’s hearing sensitivities. Thank You, God, that we now understand that behavior has physiological components. That it isn’t just about “character” the way it used to be.
I am thankful, God, that You want us to Pray and to Love and to Care. Thankful that our lives are filled with family and friends. And, now, God, I find myself thinking of large families — families with eight children and 34 grandchildren, etc. Oh, my. However do they do it?
Love, Love, Love! It is all about LOVE! And, love involves time and attention — hearing and seeing — and being WITH. I am becoming aware, God,that Our Bodies do communicate beyond our senses’ ability to convey. And, perhaps, that is true of Prayer, too? Prayer is so much MORE than we humans can grasp.
Please, God, today — in amongst my tidying and puttering — please reach out and grasp me! Please, God, envelop me in Your Love — Your incredible love for us all.
