Our happy place
Yesterday I had the most amazing, precious time with Soren. And I got a glimpse into the heart of God. We went for a walk at Mission Beach and afterward sat on the beach for awhile. Normally he likes it at first but then he gets restless or starts eating the sand. But yesterday he was in heaven the whole time and actually started crying when I put him back in the stroller! He just sat in the sand squealing with delight as he dug his toes in and tossed sand around. He hummed as he looked up at the seagulls and beach flag. He scooted all over the place and laughed at his independence. I was in heaven just watching him. To see my son so full of pure joy and delight in my happy place was perfection. And then it hit me--this must be an inkling of how God feels when he watches me delight in his beach. Or when he watches me delight in any of his creation, be it nature or people. My heart could not have been more full. To think that I could fill God's heart!
