‘What time is it?’ I thought, opening my eyes.
Two little smiles met my sleepy gaze. ‘Oh, yes,’ I reminded myself, ‘my granddaughters spent the night.’
“Would you like to watch cartoons?” I asked, hoping to get a little more sleep.
“No!” said Gracie emphatically.
“I thought you liked cartoons.” I responded.
“We’d rather spend time with you, Grammy” said Emma.
Well, you can guess that’s all it took to get me out of bed and into the kitchen where my two helpers made a huge mess and a pan of cinnamon rolls.
So often my grandchildren make me think about my relationship with God.
How often have I chosen TV over time with God, and not because He wanted to sleep in! I want that to change...and it will when I truly come to realize this:
“A single day in your courts, [Lord], is better than a thousand anywhere else!” Psalm 84:10a (NLT)
