I love Mondays.  For me, Mondays consist of mainly watching my son play,   interacting with his environment and getting more and more daring each day. I love the satisfaction I get from seeing him happy and well.  And knowing that I get to be part of his day.  My son has the most infectious smile (I’m sure every mum says this); throughout my day, I find myself drawn into that smile and look for ways to make him smile at me even more. Sometimes it’s little things like a game of tickle but sometimes I have to think creatively and really try to do something unexpected to get a genuine and spontaneous smile out of him. As I was watching him play today, I got the strongest sense of the presence of God as I felt him almost watching me watch my son with a smile on HIS face. There is a verse that says : ”
Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering” (Romans 12:2 MSG)
I love that picture of God. The picture of him as that parent who looks in on my day and sees me doing the most ordinary of things that bring a smile on his face. Just like I watch my son just living and growing and smile,so does He. My father in heaven.
