Devotions from Judy’s heart

Last night before I went to bed I received precious e-mails from each of our granddaughters who are 7 and 9 years old. My heart was warmed as I read about their day and Paige questioned some things she didn’t understand etc. Lily wasn’t able to write as much but the important phrase was, “Grandma  I love you so much!”. What joy it brought to my heart and I smiled as I read their words. I thought of how the Lord loves when we connect with Him and tell him about our day before we go to sleep. It is good to reflect each night on how we have seen Him in the day’s happenings. Where we have also failed and need forgiveness etc. Maybe asking for help for the next day in some areas etc.  I read today from Ps. 149:4 and 5, “For the Lord takes pleasure in His people; He adorns the humble with salvation. Let the godly exult in glory; let them sing for joy on their beds.”  I am always astounded that the Lord should take pleasure in me and want to hear all about my day, my life etc. But as I get joy from hearing from my grandkids, I’m sure He does even more. I want to share Paige’s last line in her e-mail… “Besure to read this to grandpa as it might give him something to preach about.”  It made grandpa smile too!
