Awards night in heaven!

Tonight is the Emmy's. I can only imagine all the excitement and preparation that goes into tonight’s award ceremony. It got me to thinking about the awards I'm working toward in heaven.

Sometimes it's so easy to forget about the bigger picture. Life gets busy kwim??

But there will come a time when my life on this earth is over and I stand before my maker. Wow what a thought.........

When I stand before my maker and we know each other intimately, when He looks deep into my eyes down into my soul and finds my heart.

What is He going to find there???

The dust of my body will fade and blow away and the things of this earth won't matter. It's my heart........

I want Him to find me beautiful. I want Him to delight in me. I want a heart just like His!!! Imagine having beautiful, how perfect!!!

My heartfelt prayer; Oh Lord I give myself to you. I melt in Your hands. Mold me; make me into what you desire. Here I am, here is my will. I give it up to you. Take me and use me. I need you more than I need air to breathe. Nothing will separate me from your love, bind me to you. Hold me close. WOW!!! You are awesome! So perfect, so holy! You are genius!

Ephesians 3:17-19 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

You made me cry, Jennifer! Oh, my, your writing--your heart is what I REALLY mean--takes my breath away.

Little did I know when you were a darling, bustling, adventuresome, creative, energetic preteen (I can still see you dressed in funny costumes with your friends and traipsing about in the little copse of woods behind our two houses in Leesburg), that you would become the woman you are today.

"This is my beloved son in whom I am well pleased," God said of Jesus when John baptized him in the Jordan River.

"This is my beloved daughter in whom I am well pleased," I say of my daughter Jennifer. You baptize me in love every time I read one of your posts.

Love, Mom

Oh wow Mom what a comment!!! I'm truly honored, thank you. I'm going to print that out and tape it to my wall. I love you.
