Every once in a while, God sends me a little reminder. He just did it again.
The whole family is home after being apart the whole day. All of a sudden, I take a nose dive:
-Questions are non-stop, and I do mean NON-STOP.
-Hubby comes home and the roof blows off the house.
-Dinner can’t be made cuz I forgot to take the chops out of the freezer (after someone put them in there before I had a chance to tell them not to)
-There is stuff evvvv-errrrrr-eeeeee-where.
Hubby tries his best to defuse the situation by announcing he needs a hug. I bark back that I don’t have one to give. Then it happens. God’s little reminder. I go sit down in my chair, followed shortly by a little messenger about 4 feet tall. She hands me a small dry-erase board on which she has written:
“Why can’t you be happy? I want a hug, Daddy wants a hug. Why? Come on! Be happy!”
Then, a couple minutes later she returns with a new message, complete with musical notes drawn in, “put a little love in your heart”….How does she know that song? How?
The message is clear. I need a little love in my heart…I haven’t gone to Him today to fill me so that I can pour it all out on them. I need a little love in my heart. A message from God from one of His most beautiful messengers.
