Have you ever had such a vacation so awesome that you cried when it was over? Not just because you had to go back to the daily grind of life. Well, I am sure that is a part of it, but the end of this vacation feels like coming off of a mountain top.
Eddy and I are on our way home from the KLOVE Fan Awards. The past few days have been a bit like living on the edge of heaven. We experienced worship like never before. The presence of God was palpable. The music, testimonies, and words of encouragement in which we have been immersed have given much water to our thirsty, tired souls.
As I step back into the “real world,” I face the reality and blessing that our daughter has moved to new city for a new job. Today is her first day. Why do I get nervous for her? God opened this door for her. He’s got this! I suppose it’s a mama thing. I miss her so.
On the other end of the spectrum is our 28 year old son, Ben, who has autism and is newly obsessed with purchasing “Thomas the Tank Engine” videos. Telling him this is not an age appropriate desire makes no difference. He persists in being locked in on obtaining them… We will deal with this for a while.
Can I just go back to the KLOVE bubble for a little longer? Wishful thinking… But praise God I have a heart and mind filled to the brim with His blessings from this time. Tomorrow we will return to work, Miriam will get more settled into her new job, and Ben will still want those videos. But most importantly, God will be with each of us as we walk through the days ahead.
We will draw on the richness of the music, the spirit of worship, and our undisturbed time of being in the presence of our sweet Heavenly Father. We will fight harder for that precious time in our everyday lives, and we will reflect on the view from the mountaintop, knowing that there is so, so much more to come as eternity awaits us.
“And those the LORD has rescued will return. They will enter Zion with singing; everlasting joy will crown their heads. Gladness and joy will overtake them, and sorrow and sighing will flee away.” (Isaiah 35:10)
Be blessed…To God Be the glory!
