When Love Calls Me to Come

When Love Calls Me from My Place of Comfort
I'd had a rough night and there was a cold November rain beating my windows, so I decided to stay inside the whole day. 

As I sunk into my comfy couch ready to savor my first cup of morning coffee, my daughter called. 

"Did you remember Paxton's Thanksgiving program this morning?" 

"Oh, no! I forgot!" 

Everything within me wanted to skip it, but I thought of the gleam in our four-year-old grandson's eyes the day he told us about his program...his chubby little hands outstretched in joy. 

Nothing could keep me away. So I quickly dressed and ventured out in the rain, a bit achy but resolved. 

following Christ out of loveAnd I thought about my relationship with Jesus. 

Sometimes I really don't want to do something I know He's asked me to do. But then I think of His nail-scarred hands outstretched, bidding me to follow. And I venture out.

Not because I have to but because I love Him and He loves me.

  1. This was beautiful Gail and captivating. I know that feeling of not wanting to venture out in the rain...like today. I loved the comparison of doing things that the Lord asks us to do. Thanks.

  2. Hello Gail, We are in the Arctic Blast around here! It is so important to be a part of these special times with our Grandchildren. I but sometimes our bodies need a time of quiet and rest. Trying to keep things balanced and in His timing. Have you stopped doing your Friday linkups?
    Have a good day!
    Blessings, Roxy

    1. Hi Roxy,
      My husband is helping his father with cataract surgery in CO and he has been enjoying the "Arctic Blast" too, but today I wore sandals!! It's not always that warm in NC, but it was today.

      Yes, we need to know that balance when we age and sometimes It's okay to say "no." : )

      Yes, I quit doing the link ups. While we were in Budapest this fall, I had poor internet service and my inlinkz subscription was ready to run out, so I decided to let it go. I'm trying to decide how to better plan my time as I'm spending too much time on my blogging and too little time doing some of the other things I enjoy. But I haven't gotten it figured out yet.

      Gail : )
