I’ll admit, I’ve been terrible this summer. Too busy on Sundays playing and soaking up the sun to head to church to soak up the Son. So it was no big surprise when I pushed the “play” button on the answering machine the other day and heard this:
“Uh…hello…uh…Stephenie? It’s me, God. You know, your Heavenly Father. It’s been a while since I’ve heard from you so I thought I’d just give you a quick call to check in. I know that you’ve been really busy lately. Those two boys that I loaned you sure are a handful aren’t they?
I’ve received your many thank you notes about the blessings that I’ve given you. Again, you’re so very welcome. And I’ll tell you, I am ready to send more blessings your way. I don’t want to give anything away, but let’s just say that I know the desires of your heart and I’m ready to do more than you could imagine, guess, or request, even in your wildest dreams. I just wish you had a little more time for your Dear Ol’ Dad up here.
I tried to get your attention the other day, but you didn’t notice me. You were looking down, worried about get somewhere in a hurry, and didn’t notice the beautiful blue sky that I had sent your way. That’s been happening more and more lately; people too busy to notice the little things I do for them.
Well anyway, I really wasn’t calling to complain, I only called to say that I love you and to tell you that I’ve been thinking about you. Call me can when you get a quiet moment. I know that quite time with me hasn’t always been your thing, but I think you’d be surprised what good friends we could be if you just invested the time.
I know. Asking a busy mama to give more of something. Guess that’s just the Father in me. Always wanting more time from the people I love the most. I sure do hope to hear from you soon. Love you…oh, and all of your family up here wanted me to tell you they miss you and love you too. Gotta run. Miles to go before I sleep.
