I'm so glad you've stopped by my blog! I am a Women's Minister and a former Pastor's Wife. I love finding God in my regular-everyday-stuff. I struggle with keeping up with the laundry, I love blogging, and my kids are my first line of ministry. I am recently widowed. So God and I are on a brand new journey as I try to find peace and understanding. Please grab a cup of coffee and let's get to know one another as we journey on our faith walk together.

Thoughts that make Him smile

I have often shared with friends and family that since John moved to Heaven I think I use my voice less.  It's kind of a funny thing... but a serious one all the same.

I would call John every time I got in the car - rarely did I drive anywhere really by myself - because I would give him a quick call just to say a whole lot of nothing.  We loved it!

So now, I find myself getting in the car and.... being quiet.  I actually have a ton of time to just be quiet and think!  Sometimes this is good and sometimes this is really hard.

I find myself praying and just talking to God the way I used to just chat with John.  I guess this might be considered a form of meditation.  We talk about what's going on and how the scriptures that I'm reading might apply or strengthen what I'm experiencing.

I guess what I'm trying to say this morning is I want my conversations with the Lord to be just as pleasing to Him as those small little chats were to John.  I could almost hear John smile when he picked up the phone.  I want to make the Lord smile when I meditate on Him.

I found this verse this morning and it's given me a new determination to make sure that even my thoughts be pleasing to the Lord.

Psalm 104:34 (ESV)
May my meditation be pleasing to Him, for I rejoice in the Lord.

I do rejoice in Him - even through this! I don't know where "this" is taking me - but I want to have pleasing "chats" with the Lord while we're walking this road together.
