A Grandson’s Delight



My Grandson . . . . . . . . . .  
He delights in my presence.
He watches for me to come,
     and runs to meet me at the door.
Or sometimes he waits
     until I come in the door,
     then runs across the room,
     flies into my arms,
     giving me big hugs
     and one of our own special,
          name-brand waterproof kisses.

He loves me.
He thinks I am wonderful.
I don’t have to do anything
except “show up.”
He just seems to want me!
God, I want to delight in you,
as Jake delights in me.
I know You already delight in me .

C.S. Lewis says “I think we delight to praise what we enjoy because the praise not merely expresses, but completes the enjoyment. Complete my enjoyment of you, Dear God
