Adoration and Devotion

This is Day 26 of “31 Days of Whimsical Encounters” – part of the #write31days challenge. To read all the posts in order, please visit the overview page.

We were laying in a field of flowers. Jesus and I. We both had a glass of wine (or grape juice if you will…). Where there are flowers and fruity drinks, there are bees. And there were bees – but they weren’t like earthly bees that you fear or swat away. They didn’t pester us. They were just around. Also there were hummingbirds fluttering around.

When I’ve spent time with Jesus, usually conversation is light-hearted with lots of belly laughs. Today seemed to be more sacred and intimate. We entered a tender moment and I knew that someone was about to say something – something solemn and sweet. If it was supposed to be me, I wasn’t sure what it was. We sat in silence for a few minutes. It was Him. ” I adore you,” He said to me. It took me off guard because those were words usually sung to Him. We sat a minute while I let the impact of those words… spoken by Him… to me… sink in. Then He told me, “I’m devoted to you.” HE is devoted to ME. Definitely a tender and cherished moment.
