sidling up


Today God showed up in my life. He is always there hovering, but today He pulled up a chair and sidled right up against me. 

I felt Him sitting across from me when I ate enchiladas with my friend and talked about kids and grad school and other stuff.

I also felt Him when I stayed up until 11 pm talking to old friends after book club. We talked about friendship and trust and decency. 

And then I thanked Him in my prayers and we said goodnight to each other.

I think that would be the BEST kind of friend to have by your side.
I think HE loves you.

Moments like that are such precious gifts, but it's even more of a gift to have the perspicacity to recognize them. Beautiful.

Beautiful.
I love that post.
Such a gift to recognize that in your life, in the small moments and in the big ones.

Moments like this always see me through the ones where I'm not sidling up to him. So happy for you for a day of peace like this.

Enchiladas are a heavenly experience.

Beautiful!!
I think sometimes we all need to take the time to really realize he is there with us.
You are a great example!

What a beautiful feeling that must've been. How great that you were able to recognize it.

A tender mercy for sure. And even though you said good night to Him, he was still there.
