I said goodbye to my hubby and kids yesterday as they dropped me off for work. The boys were going for a sleep over at their Aunts that night so I would not see them again that day.
Now my hubby and i had an absolutely AMAZING time on our date with friends. And I know that it is super important for us to have date night and time away from kids.
We are blessed to have the chance more often then some.
So it’s all good things, but i am sitting here this morning during my daily devotion missing the heck out of my boys.
I miss my darling S.S. because our relationship has had so many ups and downs over the last few months and we don’t get him often enough that I hate times where we have him and i can’t be with him. Luckily this sleepover was planned on his mom’s weekend so we actually got extra time, but i was working and missed most of the day so it’s just a bit of a bummer.
I miss #BabyLogan just because well I do! It never ceases to amaze me how I can literally miss him after less than 24 hours. Not necessarily because I’m a mom who’s made her kid their entire world- I feel I have lots of other things that I do along with being a mom. But just because he is such a gift and brings such joy to me and my husband that even sometimes when I drop him off at school in the morning I feel myself missing him fiercely by 2 in the afternoon.
The love that I feel for my children specifically the one that was born from my body reminds me of how much God loves us. Of how much God misses us when we stray away from him. I know God can seem like a big God and that God can seem like a scary God. He can even seem like a judgmental and mean God. But he is just like a loving parent. Yes sometimes there is harshness and discipline because that is what is best for us. But overall he loves us so much and when we are gone he misses us dearly.
So whether you’ve been away from God for your entire life, years, months, or just the last several days. Know that he misses you and he wants you to come home. He loves you and is waiting with open arms.
