    Hi, How are you today? I had on my heart to share a little from my world. Up close and personal, so to speak.

 My heart's cry to to know God more intimately, and to encourage others to also pursue greater intimacy.

 Something happened the day before yesterday that when to the very core of my being. I had gone to run errands. Let me say, I felt led to run these errands even though I am trying to rest, due to a year long sinus infection...that 's another story.  So after making a couple of stops, I went to Wal-mart, to get a few things for me and especially to get some mailing envelopes. When I first went in the story, they had a whole isle of hyacinths for sell. How, I love bulbs and flowers....but my particular delight aren't regular-sized hyacinths but the smaller variety....the grape hyacinth. Wow....at that moment I wanted to make my way to the garden center to see if they had any....but, I just didn't have the energy....so I went and got my groceries. Okay, I'm now back in the car, and Oh No!!! I realized I had forgotten by mailing envelopes, the very thing I needed the most. So, back in I went. Pass the larger hyacinths....same thoughts came, could I make it to the garden center. Same thought...no, just keep on track. Again. my heart just cried out for... grape hyacinths, but there was no way, because I still had to go to the post office and go back to Mardel's where I had left my credit card by mistake. Conserving my strength was what I knew I had to do.

   Yesterday I rested a lot, and didn't do much physically because the little I had done the day before had taken my strength, but I got out in the yard to pick the last of the daffodils...as I was walking, I just glanced at some very aggressive vines I had planted in a stone planter....I walked over to take a look....Oh My Gosh!! there were three grape hyacinths growing....I can vaguely remember putting them there...but I had totally forgotten about them....I knew that God had directed my steps to them.....He loves me that much, and He wanted to delight me. That's right!!! The God of the Universe...Creator of all, the God who loves every person on planet earth and His a lot more important things on His agenda than this. Needless to say, I was blessed to the very depth of my soul, but I wasn't surprised. Not surprised, at all. For you see that is the kind of God He is. He is the great "I AM". He is God of the Big and God of the small. He so longs to delight me. And, He so longs to delight you.

God wants us to love Him with all our hearts, with all our soul and with all our mind. In other words, He desires intimacy. He wants us to bask in His presence, and to fellowship over His Word, and He wants to then be a part of each and every part of our lives. When we seek Him with our whole heart and let Him put in our  heart those desires that are His perfect will for us, and then He can and will give us the desires of our heart. I have so many unbelievable stories of how he has given me the desires of my heart....but none touch me like the three little grape hyacinths that He directed me to.

I am learning to not seek things and stuff.....I am learning to seek Him first daily.....and in my seeking, He shows me that He loves me so much...that He not only sent His son to the cross in my stead, but that He is my everything. He sent His Holy Spirit to daily walk with me and talk with me, and have an intimate relationship. My blog is to encourage you to seek Him....with everything you've got. Run hard after Him. Draw close to Him and He will draw close to you. If you would like to comment, you can do so, by emailing me (darylan54@aol.com) and I will post appropriate comments. Be Blessed in Him, to be a blessing!!!!
