Yesterday..... this daily devotional really really touched me in some ways..I like to share it with all of u guys..

I walk my dog early in the morning. As I walk I think about the day and sometimes pray for God's guidance. One December morning beforedawn the stars were shining, and a half moon glowed softly. It was abeautiful morning, and I began to pray.

I found this difficult, however, because I felt detached from God. Mywords seemed hollow. It was a difficult time for me. My mother, who had Alzheimer's, had recently had a stroke that left her bed-ridden.My job created worries and distractions in my life. I realized that Ihad allowed these concerns to create distance between God and me. Buteven though I felt distant from God that morning, I asked God to helpme reconnect, acknowledging that I was the one at fault for this estrangement.

As I finished my walk, I saw a flock of geese flying in their usual V-formation. But one of the birds had dropped behind the V and wasnot flying with the flock. As I watched, this goose caught up andrejoined the formation. I took that image as reassurance that God hadanswered my prayer. It was as if God were saying to me, "Your place is always waiting for you. I'm glad you're back."

Prayer: O Lord, thank you for loving us so much that even when wewander you seek us and call us close. Amen.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY : God saves a place for each of us.--
