Coffee in the Rain

What are we doing today, Dad?

I am working through the book “The workbook of Abiding in Christ” by Maxie Dunnam. Today’s quote that struck me was:

“This resurrection life you received from God is not a timid, grave-tending life. It’s adventurously expectant, greeting God with a chidlike “What’s next, Papa?”

We live on the same property as our daughter and son-in-law and three grandchildren. The kids love the weekends when their Dad is home.  They love most of all to be with him,  helping him with the things he is involved with. If he’s feeding the birds, they want to come into the aviary with him, if he’s repairing something, they want to knock in a nail or two, hold his tools, whatever he gives them to do. If he needs to go shopping to buy more fish to replace the ones that died, or scoop out the baby fish before they become another fish’s lunch, they are there, asking questions, eager to be involved.

Imagine if my walk with my heavenly Father could be like that! “Hey Dad, what are we doing today?  Will you come with me to the places I need to be and the things I need to do? Can I help you with what you are doing? I might not be able to fix something but I can hold nails! Pleeease.” Imagine how exciting life could be!.
