So, I was in the kitchen the other day. No, I wasn’t whipping up one of my incredibly famous meals from scratch. My wonderfully pink Dell laptop rests on my kitchen counter, and I was all consumed. I do understand that it’s cool to go Mac, but Dell and I have had a successful relationship for many years now. He has been faithful and true – and my software works as it should on him. To toss him aside for a trendier model just seems unkind.
So, I was in the kitchen.
I hear John Henry calling from the family room, “Mom, would you come in here with me, so I know where you are?”
I saved my draft and met his request.
A couple of days later, it was pretty much the same scenario.
“Mom, would you come in here, so I can see you?”
“Yes, son.” And, so I did.
I wonder how often God calls us to come be with Him, and we are too frenzied with other things. I can assure you it happens all the time with yours truly. Don’t get me wrong. I dust off my Bible at times and read it the old-fashioned way. I do, however, like the accessibility of reading the Bible online – on my wonderfully pink Dell, no less. I’m always swift to pray for my family and others. I usually serve when there is a need.
But, I often don’t take the time to slow down – take my eyes off of the consumptions of the day – and just be with Him. No appealing. Just a little girl enjoying time with her Father – and a Father enjoying His little girl.
I think our Heavenly Father call us often. “Hey, Dusty, would you come in here with me, so I can see you?”
“Coming John Henry!”
