When our family of five came to visit, Mema stopped everything. Mema would simply stop her life to love us. Mema would take out the card table and chairs, and everyone would play games: Candy Land, UNO, Scrabble. The den was filled with much laughter, much silliness, much love. We never knew what appointments or plans Mema cancelled, we only knew that when we arrived, everything stopped so the family could enjoy each other. Nothing in the world mattered more than spending time together. Do you realize that there is nothing more important than spending time enjoying your Heavenly Father? When you “come to visit” with Him, you will find that He has cancelled all His other appointments simply to be with you. God is anticipating your arrival. He is ready to talk and laugh and play. He has spread a table and pulled out the chairs. Learn to ENJOY God. Learn to laugh with God. God has given us so much pleasure, and we have the privilege of pleasing Him.
