This verse jumped out at me today at work as I was typing up Sunday's Power Point:
The Lord directs the steps of the godly.  He delights in every detail of their lives!  Psalm 37:23
I thought about my kids and how they are a delight to me.  I am sure that nobody else wants to watch Celine's ballet videos over and over like I do.  I never tire of them.  Watching her dance makes me happy.  And when Taye walks into the house to borrow the vacuum cleaner, I can't wait to hug him and hear about what is going on in his life. 

And I love the way he calls me momma. 

And I bet nobody loves the freckles sprinkled across my girl's nose the way I do. 

I am especially fond of these two:


The Lord directs the steps of the godly.  He delights in every detail of their lives!  Psalm 37:23
I love how my kids put into perspective how God feels about you and me.  Think about it.  Every detail.

Your smile.

When you call Him Father. 

When you pass your test.  Barely.  When you didn't go off on the rude cashier at Wal-mart.  When you make the final payment on the car.  When you are exasperated with work or toddlers or teenagers.  He sees the work you do as a caregiver.  The sacrifices you make as a mother. 

 ... Every little seemingly insignificant detail - He notices.  

He loves to hear you talk to Him about what's going on in your life because He is especially fond of you!

The Lord your God is with you; He is mighty to save.  He will take great delight in you; He will quiet you with His love.  He will rejoice over you with singing.  - Zephaniah 3:17


  1. I love finding bloggers who have children as old as mine are! Makes me not feel so old. Your children are beautiful and I am sure a delight to your heart. Mine are 22 (just married 1.5 years ago), 19, 13 and 10. They are truly my delight!

    1. Thank you! Yes, it's always great to have someone who is in the same season! My kids are certainly a gift and I am growing right along with them through each milestone. We are not old!

  2. WOW, what a great thing, that the maker of heaven and earth delights in us!


I love to hear what you have to say!
