p.s. Fast forward 8 hours.... Just for the record, God did take me up on my invitation to TAKE OVER. How do I know? I had THE BEST EVENING! Mike, Molly, mom and I made a plan to visit dad at his "rehab" facility (the learning to walk and build muscle kind), go to dinner at a great restaurant where the food was especially delish, and then see the movie, 'Parental Guidance' where we all LOL'd histerically. My mom hardly ever agrees to see movies in an actual theater so I knew He was working out the plan when she said, "yes," but the non-stop laughter confirmed it. My afternoon/evening morphed into a God ordained joyful plan where I knew without a doubt that HE was with us. It was extra special for some reason. Maybe just because I invited Him in. Wait, did I just stumbled upon my New Year's resolution? To invite God to "make my day" every day. Expect it! Witness it! And be mindful of Him and KNOW He's in it? Maybe He just wants to be loved and actually inviting Him to participate in my life grants Him that desire. Does this mean I'll get dinner and a movie every night this year? Probably not. But knowing God is directing my steps as I invite Him to do so reminds me to stay close to Him. As communication increases, so does joy (and laughter!). Our relationship can only grow closer. Love Him. Dialog with Him. Invite Him into the pajama party and see how He wants to rock your day. Every day.
