I called Alivia out into the garage and told her to go play in the rain. For the next twenty minutes she twirled. She sang. She danced. She smiled. I just stood in the garage and watched her with a smile on my own face. I took this picture on my cell phone so it's not very big, but it was just neat to watch her getting soaked.
This weekend I got a lot done around my house, but I did not take the time to spend alone time with God and today I feel the emptiness of not making Him my #1 priority. Over the last few days, my tongue was sharp, my attitude needed major adjusting and today I don't feel joy like I usually do after experiencing one on One time with Him.
I know God's not up there with a tally sheet keeping track of when I choose to not make time for Him, but I don't even want to think about what I missed out on from Him.
So this afternoon, I will be going home and making time for just me and my Creator. I hope to get soaked like Alivia did last night. I want to be dripping with the love of Jesus and leave a trail of His Holiness around my house like Alivia left a trail of water last night from the garage to her bedroom.
Have yourself a great week and join me and friends tomorrow for the YES to GOD Tuesday discussing the awesome book by Lysa TerKeurst, "What Happens When Women Walk in Faith."
