It was serious business going to the grocery store that particular day. One of us in my family had just begun a healthier eating style. My grocery list seemed long and complex as I searched the aisles for the illusive oat flour and whole grain products.

Suddenly, there she was. Only a baby, really, sitting in her mom’s grocery cart. Her blue eyes twinkled. Since I love to gaze into the faces of young children, I briefly smiled at her.

The response was magical. It was as if she knew me and, without words, giggled, drawing me into her delight as her whole body reacted in joy.

I wondered - what heavenly secrets did she know? Did she want to remind me of how joyous it is to be in the Presence of God?

Whatever she was ‘saying’ to me that day, I got the message. I could feel tears
springing to my eyes as I felt drawn closer to God and His joy-filled Love.

O Lord, our Lord how majestic is Thy name in all the earth!
Thou whose glory above the heavens is chanted by the mouths of babes and infants. Psalm 8:1-2

Heavenly Father, thank You for moments of delight. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
