A Kiss for Your Soul

February 24, 2010

Do you ever feel like your world is going to swallow you whole? Or that you just can’t keep up? Well, as a radio host and work-from-home mother of a 10 month old boy who never stops moving, I feel like I’m chasing a tornado on a daily basis. Baby on one hip, laptop on the other and iPhone to my head I think I need another arm!

Today I was reminded to take some time to smell the roses and slow down just a little when my son took my chin and cupped it in his little hands and planted a “baby kiss” on my nose. Then he smiled at me with his little “one tooth” grin. I could have just melted. I had been rushing around trying to keep him occupied while I answered the morning’s emails and text messages from work. He had crawled up on my leg wanted to be picked up.  I had hurriedly scooped him up with the idea of placing him next to a pile of toys, but he just wanted to give his momma a kiss.

You know I think sometimes God works that way. We’re so busy trying to keep our lives together as if we were in control or something! Then when God comes knocking wanting to spend some time with us we just mutter a quick prayer or read a quick psalm and want to go on our way. But God desired to show us his love in that moment of stress. He wanted to cup our heart in his almighty hands and place a kiss on our soul.

Think about getting a soul kiss next time you feel God tugging for a few moments of your time.

    Hi Gayle!

    We just realized that this post had Charyl’s name on it as the author, when actually it was written by Janna. Hope that didn’t confuse you! Sorry about that. But anyway to answer your questions Janna’s son will turn 2 in April. It’s hard to believe the time has gone so fast! Thanks for checking our blog and website and Merry Christmas!
