Love & Joy

So the kids got up from naps the other day - the boy 1st & the girl about 20 minutes later. L ran down the stairs screaming her brother's name & squealed (b/c that's what little girls do) as she ran & threw her arms around him. They both laughed. I stood back & delighted that they enjoyed each other. That they love each other. It made my heart skip a beat to see my children so happy to be with each other. And God reminded me of His words & gave me a glimpse, like He so often does......Love one another......in that moment those words were alive for me. My children....loving one another brought me joy. I imagine that on a tiny scale, I experienced the joy that God must feel when His children Love one another. It's true to me now more than ever that God is so alive & He is with us! Carrying us in the hard times & just nudging ... like He did so gently today for me....love one another...
Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves.
Romans 12:10

Oh, how I want to follow the example of my children.....
