Caleb insisted that our walk would be fun, and that I would enjoy it. He willingly offered to wait for me, while I got ready to go. Several adoringly sweet smiles, and 100% charm, and this Gramma was jumping up ready to go wherever her adventurous little grandson wanted.
The fact that Caleb was expressing his joy and delight in wanting to be with me was extremely contagious! All of a sudden, there was nothing more that I wanted to do than to be with him.
What a beautiful lesson I received this morning in JOYfull living. The weather was perfect! The fresh sea-salt air was invigorating. Inhaling the "signs of Spring" that surrounded us on our walk was mind renewing. Below are a few photos snapped on our unexpected, and enchanting walk.
Surrounded by natural beauty. Inhaling the freshness. I am so thankful that I allowed my schedule to be interrupted and gave myself permission to be. "Be" in the moment with my loved ones. Be present with Creator God who made all the beauty I was observing. Just being present in the moment.
For a recovering workaholic today was just "what the doctor ordered". I needed it more than I realized. I am so thankful for the ways that God uses people in my life to show me things that I might have missed otherwise. I am thankful for little Caleb. and his insistence that I accompany him and his mom on the walk. I am thankful for all the little and BIG ways that my Creator God continually reveals his love for me, and his JOY in me and being in my presence.
