Come sit with me...

I often hear the phrase "come sit with me, Collin" come out of Noah's mouth and generally it is followed by a quick "no" from Collin. Well today, Noah decided to snuggle up on the couch with a blanket and watch "Jonah" (Veggie Tales movie) and Collin decided to join him. No invitation, he just took the initiative. He knew the invitation was always open and he took the opportunity to act on the moment and snuggle up on the couch with his brother. Noah asked Collin if he wanted covered up too and after Collin said yes, he covered his brother up and together they watched the movie for a good 1/2 hour. It was beautiful! My heart leaped at the tender exchange and then I was humbled!! How many times do I turn God down when I feel His prompting for me to spend time with him? Too many to count!! I know the invitation is always open to spend time snuggled up with my Father, today, I will take time to snuggle and cover my soul with His word. I encourage you to do the same!
