Two things come to my mind when I think of the word delight:
- Psalm 37
Psalm 37 has been a source of comfort to me over the years. Trust, delight, commit, be still, do not fear are interwoven throughout this particular Psalm. During times of turmoil and difficulty, I intentionally chose to trust His Word. And I found that God is indeed trustworthy.
Children are a gift from God. However, due to fertility issues I was unable to have children. This was a bitter disappointment to me as I always envisioned my life as a mom. But God had a plan for my life and how thankful I am that it eventually involved children.
In the midst of very trying circumstances, the Lord brought me to a job where I get to spend eight hours a day with little ones.

I delight ...in listening to the children as they share stories with me.
I delight ...in having the opportunity to be a light.
I delight ...to love each one of the children.
I delight ...to pray for each child.
What does the word "delight" mean to you?
Blessings and love,
Note: The photo of me with the children was taken for an article published in the Arizona Republic on women with fertility issues and how they dealt with it. These are not the children I work with in our school today. Permission was granted by the parents of the children pictured here.
