morning bliss

Hi Friends.
This morning I woke up rather early to drive my cousin to school. After dropping her off, I drove to a near by Starbucks with my Bible and Elisabeth Elliot... OK, she wasn't in the car with me but two of her books were.

As I read through my daily reading, I happened upon Isaiah 66:13: "As a mother comforts her child, so will I comfort you..." We have the God of all comforts on our side. The Lord, God Almighty, will comfort you. I pray that you may find hope, peace and comfort in this wonderful verse.

Something about me that you need to know: I love people watching, it's not as bad as stalking- I watch, I don't follow, lol. Just a few feet away from me sat a father and daughter. They were lovely. They talked, laughed and even sat in silence. You didn't have to be Captain Obvious to notice that they both enjoyed each others presence. As they talked, they never took their eyes off each other. It was beautiful.

I was reminded that our Father God enjoys conversation with me... and it's not a one way, it's a two way.
God enjoys listening to me. God enjoys listening to you!
God enjoys speaking to me. God enjoys speaking to you!
God enjoys fellowship with me. God enjoys fellowship with you!

The creepy-peeping-tomasa in me couldn't hold back and I took a picture of them:

I tried real hard to catch them laughing. Oh well...

Wow! That just made my day! It makes me crave to converse with my Daddy.

Amazing! That girl (and her father) will ALWAYS cherish those moments. Trust me, I still do! ;)

I just randomly stumbled upon your blog. I love Elisabeth Elliot! And I heard Sarah Kelly perform at the One Thing conference in Kansas City a few years back. I am enjoying reading your posts and I look forward to reading more! Have you heard of Leslie and Eric Ludy? If not you should check them out. and I am praying about going to Ellerslie this summer. Lily is my daughter's name. Please follow my blog as well. Blessings, Hannah Rose
