The Day with the Boy

I am being blessed with the company of my grandson. I spent all of yesterday with him, and again today. We are having a very nice time together. He is not even a year old yet, so he has a lot yet to learn, I am 50, and I think I have a lot yet to learn as well, so we make a pretty good pair as we go through out the day together. This morning, we started the day with breakfast, then he promptly spit a large portion of it back up all over my pants, this was his loving contribution to the start of our day. After that, we decided to wipe down the shelves in the refrigerator, and this he found very fascinating. he sat on the floor next to me and moved the refrigerator door back and forth as I wiped down the inside shelf. He had a lot to say about it too, as his arms rapidly moved back and forth. Then, I noticed a puddle of white stuff on the floor next to him, and saw that the soy dream had tipped over and spilled on the floor with his rapid rocking of the door! His socks were now soaking in dream milk, he didn't really seem to mind, but we wrapped things up with the refrigerator and moved on to the sock drawer in the bedroom.  He found the sock drawer to be just as fascinating, so I let him explore there for awhile too. In and out he pushed the drawer, talking as he pushed. Then, he moved on to the blankets that lay on the shelf and pulled them all out. He ended by the discovery of  a bible case and the zipper. He seemed very intent on getting that zipper open, but no luck there.
We ended up on the couch with a bottle and blanket and a tired little boy. As I snuggled with him and looked around my son and daughter in-laws apartment viewing pictures of their little family and my grownup son, God tenderly reminded me of all that He has done. He has me in a full and interesting place in life right now. I am a mother of young children, a wife, a grand-mother, I have a ministry that keeps me very busy, and grown children as well. It is a full life.
One of my prayers for the year 2013 is that God will teach me to blossom in all of these areas, blossom in such a way that there will be more fruit in my life, and consequently more fruit in the lives of others. When He calls me to go, I want to bloom into a beautiful blossom. Today, He called me to be with my grandson cleaning the refrigerator and snuggling on the couch. Tomorrow, it will be something different, a day to day calling. Blossomed in Jesus.
Say That Again, Jesus, You have blessed me with a little man the last couple of days, and I have blossomed. Your promises continue to tell me that You will expand the territory of my heart, Say That Again!

Your eyes focused and clear, so that you can see exactly what it is he is calling you to do, grasp the immensity of this glorious way of life he has for Christians....Ephesians 1:18
