Delight

Sophie_and_Cloe_(10)I was watching my daughters play recently.  It was around 10:00 p.m., which is their usual “frisky time.”  

Cloe chased Sophie around the room.  Then Sophie would turn on Cloe and herd her into the bedroom.  One would hide behind an endtable then pounce on her sister.  They wrestled, playfully. 

Within a matter of 15 minutes, they were curled up together, fast asleep.

I smiled, contently.  I love being with them, I thought.   

I can’t imagine how much more our Heavenly Father delights in spending time with us, His children.

It’s hard for me to wrap my head around God wanting to be with me.  After all, I’m just me.  And sinful at that.  But He does want to spend time with us and delights in us…even infinitely more than I love my daughters.

“You are my son (daughter), who I love; with you I am well pleased.” -Matthew 3:17
