Nothing Much

Sometimes, when God stops by, we don’t talk about anything significant. Sometimes it’s just “how are things going?” and “aren’t the clouds pretty today?” I try to limit myself to one question of import per day, both to avoid straining the relationship and because I don’t want to forget the answer or get the gist of it wrong before I get a chance to write it down. I don’t always succeed. Somedays I write up more than one thing we talk about and save it for days when we don’t get around to anything that I feel like sharing.

Today was one of those nothing-to-talk-about days,but I’d still like to tell you about it. It’s been a long week at work, and I was just tired. When God showed up I was watching Finding Neverland, so in addition to being tired, I was very sad. God came in and sat next to me on the couch, just as the credits began to roll. He didn’t say anything, just put an arm around me and held me close.

I can’t really describe how it feels to be held by God, but let me just say that ice cream has moved down a notch on my “best things in life” list.
