Come Child

And he (the son) arose and came to his father. But when he was still a great way off, his father say him and had compassion, and ran fell on his neck and kissed him.   Luke 15:20 (NKJV)

I will admit it. Today, rather than opening the word of God, or even being still before the Lord, I failed. I woke at4:00 in the morning. It is 10:30 at night. What happened?

My still ailing husband returned home from a long days work. A sleepy potty trained child, wanted her tummy rubbed to fall back to sleep. A big sister anxious for sisters response to the holiday festivity of the home.

One off to school. Another to the doctor. Electric man came security light repair. Aunts/ mom game day, laundry, pharmacy run, store run, water run, feed the pasture animals, feed the pinned cattle, feed the children and me at some point, see the hubby off to work. Get the girls ready for the program. Go to the program.

God found the way to still my heart today. Thank You Jesus!


Lord of all creation I thank You. You call me Your child. And You call me to You. And Father thank You for coming to me when I am a bit of a way from You.
