Heaven comes down

we watch as heaven comes down 

to kiss us goodnight

 Last night, after another busy day, I began cleaning up the kitchen.  All of a sudden, my youngest daughter, Sophie, rushed into the room and said I must come– it’s pink outside and she didn’t want me to miss it. My girls know how much I love watching the evening sky. My hubby came into the kitchen to finish what I was doing so I could go outside with the girls.

“Oh my goodness!” my youngest one says in a hushed voice.  “It’s like Jesus came down!”

And then they did the cutest thing- they said they wanted to touch the sky and asked me to take this picture of them….

Then I laid down in the grass- and before I knew it, my girls joined me. And for just a few moments, we took in the amazing view.  For a short time, all the pre-teen angst and disappointments from the day melted away as we watched the breathtaking sky.  He is always faithful to meet us right where we’re at.

Your love, LORD, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies.  Psalm 36:5
