Clouds swirled in, I heard them call-
“come see us up the mountaintop!”
breezes swished in the apple-crisp air
leaves swirled ’round without a care
the wind- it whirled and howled about
orchestrating a most glorious shout!
I felt the marvelous presence of Grace
and His glory surrounded this heavenly place
I awoke one recent morning to the most beautiful sight- streams of sunlight were peeking through my mini-blinds in my bedroom, shedding light on blankets and girls and dogs strewn about our bedroom floor. We had an adventurous evening the day before, and our girls decided to sleep on our bedroom floor, along with the dogs that night.
I was the first one awake the next morning, and I saw that moment as a gift from the Lord. The girls looked like burritos- rolled up in blankets, and the dogs were curled up beside them. My husband slept soundly beside me, and I was completely overwhelmed with God’s love. In that moment, I realized everything that mattered to me was in that one room- and it was more than enough. I had to fight back tears as I thought of the girls getting older, and how things will someday change. I can’t bear to think of the day when they leave home…so I savored this rare moment when ALL of us were together, slumbering in the same room.
That overwhelming feeling of love was with me the entire day. The girls and I went to the movies, and as we came out of the theater, we noticed the temperature had dropped significantly and the clouds were swirling in the sky. On the way home, we went up to Carter’s Mountain to get some apples and cider donuts. The view was just spectacular.
I have so much to be thankful for.
