“Where are you?”

Over the last few weeks, I have been self-isolating with two of my grandsons, age 9 and 6.
It’s been a challenging few weeks, especially now I don’t have the stamina   I used to have!!!
One thing I have been very aware of is how they hate not to know where I am!!!
If I go out of the room, go to the bathroom, go outside to hang washing, it’s only a matter of minutes before I hear “Nanny…. Nanny”!!!!!
I must admit to feeling exasperated, not being able to go to the loo without them calling me!!!!!

“We thought you had gone!!!”

“Do you really think I would just leave you”!! I say in exasperation!!!

“why would I just go and leave you?!!”

Then, the other day, it was as if I heard a voice saying, “well ! you are just the same”!!!  How many times do you call, and ask, where I am! Despite all I have promised, despite my love and mercy, despite me saying I will never leave you or forsake you, you still question, doubt and are fearful in case I will leave you”!!!
How God must be so exasperated with me!!! I can now understand how he must despair of me, when I call and question where he is, wondering what he is doing in a situation of my own making, limiting what he wants to give me, to help me.
I need to take these words and print them on my heart….Mathew 28:20….”and behold I am with you always, to the end of the age”!!

  1. Love this Lou and the picture! Awww the boys seem to need lots of reassurance and its great you are able to give it to them – but how right you are we can be just like this with God! Thanks again for a great thought-provoking blog.
