Our Love Fest this morning began when I first opened my eyes.  You were so close, Lord.  How could I not say “I love You” even before I said “Good Morning”?

“My Beloved spoke and said to me, ‘Arise, My darling, My beautiful one, come with Me.'”  (Song of Songs 2:10)

We went outside.  On our front deck.  I felt the chill in the air.  The first chill of Fall.  I shivered… until I nestled into Your embrace.

“The Eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms.”  (Deuteronomy 33:27)

The wind rose, rustling the leaves in the forest all around us.  Even the bugs and the birds sang Your praises, Lord!

“All the earth bows down to You; they sing praise to You, they sing the praises of Your name.”  (Psalm 66:4)

Skippy came over with her purr-machine in full gear.  I began to thank You for bringing her to us so long ago.  She had been abandoned.  You filled our hearts with love for her.  The purr-fect addition to our family!

“A Father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in His holy dwelling.  God sets the lonely in families…”  (Psalm 68:5-6)

Suddenly my eyes filled with tears.  Tears of gratitude and joy.  You did the same for me, Lord.  I was fatherless on so many levels.  But You had already set Your heart on me… as Your daughter.  So You came after me… and changed my life forever.

I began to praise You for being such a Good Father.  A Good Dad.  A Good Daddy.

“Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your name.”  (Matthew 6:9)

“God sent the Spirit who calls out, ‘Abba, Father.’  So you are no longer a slave, but God’s child….”  (Galatians 4:6-7)

What a beautiful Love Fest this morning, Abba!  What a way to start the day!

“This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it!”  (Psalm 118:24)

Kisses in The Wind.  [Deep sigh.]

Still feeling the tender touch of Your lips…

Abba’s Girl
