God feels near.

In my mind … we are at the swing.
He pushes me.
I pump my feet.
He pushes til I am going higher and higher.
We laugh together.
I feel like a child.
I need this even if it is only in my mind.
Today…most every day, I need this time with God and to feel like a child.

Caregiving for Mama,
nursing home environment,
other elderly,
my own body aches making me feel older than my 63 years,
recovering from cervical spinal surgery slowing me down more than I normally am which is slow already.

But my mind can take me away from all of that.
My heart can draw near, nearer to God.
As I float higher on this mind-filled swing,
I let go and float.
I float into the heavenly places.
Jesus watches with love in His eyes.
He reminds me that His Love never ceases.
My Creator knit me and has always known me, loves me more deeply than I ever can.

This swing takes me higher with my Lord.
This swing changes my mood to pure joy releasing all else.
I know the childish feeling is heartfelt and real.
I am in His arms as we swing together with Love wrapped around me.

Flying high with my Lord.

And calling to him a child, he put him in the midst of them and said, “Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.”   
Matthew 18:3-4
