Open Heart Report 8/9/11

I have written my letter to my church a while back and have yet to hear any word from anyone, this made me not only nervous, but anxious as well. So this past Sabbath I sat at the edge of my bed, head in my hands, feeling down, I then looked on the bed to see my 6mo old son Ethan smiling at me, for a split second I forgot about everything, I smiled back and sat him up, I then realized that he was sitting by himself. I wanted to call someone, ANYONE, to enjoy this moment with me, I did not want to yell for fear that I may frighten him. Jamie was running around crazy, the girls where in their room talking, Karna was upstairs making lunch. So I sat and relished this perfect father son moment, I heard my Dad whisper to my heart, Matthew 3:17  me and I wept to see my son's identity and value wrapped in one well packaged text, and a calm came over me while I sat, my God was happy with what He had placed in my heart for me to do, and then Proverbs 8:30"... and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him..." as I watched my boy laugh and enjoy this moment himself in his own way. I do not know what the future holds but what I do know is that we serve a God who's intimately connected with us, who's every moment is dedicated towards His children as described in Psalms 40:5 and  Psalms 139:17, 18 "How precious also are Your thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them! Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand. When I awake, I am still with You." What an amazing value system God has put in place for us and it is not based on our accomplishments or deeds, its simply based on being HIS, and for this reason and this reason alone...my Dad is proud of me :)
