Wishing I'd Show Up

    "I will meditate on Your precepts
         And regard Your ways. 
    I shall delight in Your statutes;
         I shall not forget Your word." 
Psalm 119:15-16

Yesterday the sunshine and  unusually warm fall temperatures beckoned to me, so I grabbed my camera and went for a walk.  Along the way I photographed the autumn splendor. When I came to an empty park bench, I rested and prayed. Sitting there in the sun I thought of how busy I get with daily activities, and how pleasant it is to stop what I'm doing and quiet my soul. When I do, Jesus joins me and I delight in recalling and meditating on His word. I can't help but wonder how many times the Lord is sitting on the bench, wishing I'd show up.


  1. He seems to hover in places where I've met Him before. It's an awesome thought that the Lord of the universe wants to share my company!

  2. Thanks for this reminder. Isn't it amazing that the God of the universe waits for us?


I appreciate your comments and read each one.
