Ahhh, sigh - I sit here

As I sit here I ponder so many things.   Like a silent guest in an audience - I await.    The joy yet stretching moments in life.   The simple and incomprehensible predicaments and blessings from choices made.   Rescue.   Quiet.  Noise.  The "why" of a child.  The smiles and kisses visioned from imagination of the angles while they sleep.  The difficulty of articulation when the heart and ear is not willing to hear.  "HOW TO."   The need to pursue growth thru pruning and accountability.  The  uncontrollable laughter that leaves the body aching beyond measure and the spasms that come some time after.   Slap Happy, belly roll laughter. The deep sigh of "a job well done."   The close friends of a life time.  Those that simply come to cross your path ever now and then yet it never seems time has passed by when the reconnection takes place.
Broad shoulders.  Weary body.  Strength and Peace from only HEAVEN.

ahhhh, sigh.  Jeremiah 33:3.  Ephesians 3:20.   Philippians 4:8 . . . .

The true joy of LOVE.  The daily living that leaves footprints forever upon your soul.  The seasons of change.  The sorrow of loss.  The empty but profound fullness through Jesus Christ.  WORSHIP!  Study.  PRAYER!!!   The unending growth spiritually.  Inconceivable but so visible waves of change that were not good, not better but for the BEST.   Forgiveness necessary.  Love unending.   Joy superseding.  Hope maintained.   The ability to DREAM and keep REACHING for the STARS.   Silent and sometimes make believe friends.   Aspirations met.  Aspirations yet to come.  Ideals hmmmm.  Reality reasoned.  Imagination frequently formed.   Listen.  Go!  Willing.  Frightened.  Anticipation.  Ecstatic jubilation!   GO!   Listen.  RESPONSE.  "I AM WILLING, SEND ME.  FOR YOUR SERVANT IS WILLING and LISTENING.  HEARING.  BEING STILL.  CALLING TO YOU.  EXPECTING with no trepidation but adrenaline and wonder.   WHERE?  WHEN?  I AM HERE!"

Only LOVE!  Only Jesus Christ!  Only one life.   Only one Holy Spirit! Only ONE SAVIOR!  Only ONE SALVATION!  ONLY ONE TRUE GOD!  Only ONE WAY - THE WAY!  Only one "I AM!"

. . . and Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."  John 14:5-7 

    Yes, as I sit here I ponder, wonder, and sit in anticipation of so many things.
                     Like a silent guest in an audience - I await with Joy!
