I put her in her bed and she laid down as usual so I quietly left the room and shut the door.
Hard at work at my desk, I think I hear faint knocking. I got still and quiet and heard it again…that gentle knock, knock, knock….and then a faint, “Mamaaa.” I rushed to the bedroom door to find my funny girl standing there with her gorgeous big blue eyes dancing, shirt off and hanging around her neck, hair a mess…and she squeals, ” I FOUND YOU!!” and jumped in my arms. We washed each other in floods of hugs and kisses as if the 5 minutes that passed had been 5 years! It was delicious!
In the midst of our blissful reunion my heart was caught and I prayed, “Oh, Lord may she always look for you and find You in joy. May her heart be always searching for You in all that she sees and does. May she always open the doors You knock on and jump wholeheartedly into Your arms.”
“Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me”
Wherever we are….there He is. Knocking. Open the door now and JUMP!
