Metal lunch boxes that flew open at the worst of times,
Playing kickball outside with the neighborhood kids.
Listening to the crickets singing on a late summer’s evening.
Evenings of homework and then family times.
But even though in a way it seems different
some things remain the same.
People still matter.
Children still light up my world.
Older ones continue to speak words of wisdom
as they remember a different time
and a different world.
Ordinary days are filled with the extraordinary
for those who see it.
Truth is stronger than evil
although it might not look like it.
And even though it might seem like your individual efforts
on any given day
are not appreciated
there is One Who knows.
Yes, He knows your heart.
He knows how very hard you are trying.
He knows and cares
An old chorus used to go…’It matters to Him about you.”
As a growing girl I’d sing along and often wonder.
How could a God I could not see
possibly know and care?
But He does.
So whatever you are experiencing this day
let the light of this Truth brighten your moments.
He knows. He cares.
His love is everlasting.
The days are growing shorter. Practically dark when I awaken now.
Changes ever so slightly.
But there is One Who never changes.
Let Him draw you to Himself today
and nestle in His arms.
Yes, relax and sink into His Love that will never let you go.
