The Joy of Presence
I just got back from visiting my daughter who lives in Salt Lake City. We had a wonderful time going white water rafting, hiking in a national park and just spending time together. One evening we went to Dead Horse Point Park to watch the sunset. It was spectacular! No picture can capture the beauty of the canyons and the myriad of colors in the sky. It is a treasure to be together. I will hold these memories in my heart forever.
I truly adore my daughter. While as her father I may be a bit partial, she is a fascinating person. I greatly enjoy spending time with her and miss her desperately. That is why being together is precious.
I reflect on how much God longs for us to spend time with him. He adores us. We are his treasure. He is desperate for us to be with him…to walk the path of life together. May we make time to be with God, who is the lover of our soul.
