Start . . .
ow come the other day, when a friend wrote on Facebook, to share our favorite childhood books, I could only remember one – Tikki Tikki Tembo
and as soon as I saw today’s Five Minute Friday word, VISIT, the book, Little Visits with God immediately came to mind. It was a book that my dad would often read before bedtime. I believe I had a copy of one when my older kids were young. I might have to find another copy to read to my younger ones.
And then I laughed to myself when I thought of another word with VISIT. I remember not having a clue when I first started college when my roommates said “Their friend came to visit” or “Aunt Flo came for a visit “.
As I think of the day, I am thankful how our married kids will come for an unannounced VISIT. They had a younger sibling come for a VISIT for the evening and brought her back and stayed awhile to VISIT with us. Of course one of the best to VISIT is my granddaughter. Oh I love to VISIT with her, and kiss her chubby little cheeks and listen to her squeal. I got her all dressed to go out the other day, and it was fun just to
chat VISIT with her and tell her all about her mama! She did listen quite intently!
Can you imagine what it will be like to someday, to sit and actually see Jesus, and VISIT with Him, like Adam and Eve did in the garden? Certainly we can have our quiet times with Him now, which reminds me of the words to a song,
And He walks with me and He talks with me
And He tells me I am His own
And the joy we share as we tarry there
None other has ever known
Yes, we can have, little VISITS with God, like our friends and family, throughout our day.
