It all happened so quick that one Thursday morning. Right between breakfast and getting ready to head off to work. It could have easily slipped away, and yet it didn’t. It happened…. and it was beautiful.
I thought back to all those conversations in college with a mentor and friend who was intentional about the way conversations would end. “What else?” he’d always ask… just to see if there was anything else you wanted or needed to share. Again and again he’d ask until the awkward “I don’t know… nothing else I guess” would surface. He never leaves a conversation until he knows you are done… you’ve shared what you need to share.
And on that Thursday morning, something prompted me to ask God the same question… to linger a little longer and make sure He was finished. As I closed my Bible and got up to go on with my day after my devotions, I found myself sitting back down for a second and simply asking, “Anything else, God?”
And His reply blew me away and brought me to tears:
“Actually, yes. Thanks for asking.
I just wanted to remind you that I love you. Have a great day, my daughter!”
And to think I almost missed it.
