I sit at my desk most of the day, working or writing or wasting my entire life away on the Internet. The dogs let me know when they need to go outside and the Missus lets me know when I need to “GET OFF YOUR FAT DUFF AND GET SOMETHING DONE!” By the way, my ‘duff’ is not that fat so she’s wro…not right on that point. Sometimes for no good reason, the Budster will walk over and sit down about three feet away and face me. That’s my cue to turn my chair and hold out my hands. He moves in, presses his forehead against my leg and I love on him. When he’s had enough, and that sometimes takes a while, he’ll back away, turn around and lay on the floor. Then it’s nap time. Peace.
Remember when you were young and in love and for no good reason you’d give your boyfriend or girlfriend or husband or wife (did I leave anyone out?) a hug? If you have children, you’ve done the same thing. A show of affection for no good reason at all other than the fact that you love that person. Peace. Me and the Missus are no longer young but we’re still in love. For no good reason, I tell the her that I love her and it does my heart good to hear her say those words to me.
It’s the same with God, you know. We don’t really need a good reason to pray. We don’t have to wait until we sit down to a meal or when we lie down at night or when we need something specific from God. For no good reason at all we can simply walk up to Him and wait. He’ll hold His arms out, we’ll move in and He holds us.
For you did not receive the spirit of slavery leading again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption, by whom we cry, “Abba, Father.”
For no good reason other than the fact that you love Him, go and tell Him. Go to Him and say, “Hey, it’s me. I just wanted to say, ‘I love you.'”
I’m gonna pet the Budster now. He didn’t do anything special. He just came up to me to tell me he loves me. “I love you too, Buddy. I love you a lot.”
