The Ascension of our Lord
You left, lifted to heaven so that the Spirit would come. The world opened to not know you by chance of just living in the same vicinity as you but having you with every person, in every place possible. You know I wanted to be with you today, but felt you knew this and gave me the permission to not be with you. Being here with family felt I was here with you. This afternoon being with the kids too, playing and relaxing in the sun. It all felt right. It all felt like being with you.
Thank you sweet Jesus, my Lord and my God, for spending the Spirit to be with me. I so have much more I desire to read, listen, watch, do and say about you than I have time. Help me always to seek you in the simple things, the people and places immediately in front of me. Help me to lower myself so that you may be raised up in glory, with the Father and your Spirit. May my heart soar as you did to Heaven. In you I trust.
