“For the Son of Man came to seek…”
“Ah, there you are, Sparrow,” God called to me as He opened the garden gate. “I’ve been looking for you.”
“The tomatoes needed staking,” I said. “I came out early, before the heat. What’s on your mind?”
“Nothing, really. I just wanted to hang out with you today,” He answered.
“I want to hang out with you, too,” I said.
“Great! What shall we do today?” God asked.
“What do you want me to do?” I asked.
“Whatever makes your heart happy,” He said.
I thought for a few moments. “Let’s go swimming down at the Yuba River.”
“That’s a good idea. I’m already there with a lot of other people. It can be like a little party,” God said. I could hear a happiness in His voice.
I smiled, thinking of how God seeks out our company, wanting so very much to be involved in the day to day activities of our lives. “Let me finish with this tomato bush, and I’ll go get my swimsuit.”
God smiled. “Here, let me help you,” and together we tied up the sprawling branches.
I wonder, what are you doing with God today?
