It happened. Tilly and Emmit actually leaned on each other. Though they still aren't playing, they do seem to comfort each other by being physically close such as here and on the couch.
The same is true of our relationship with God. Even though He is always there, calling us, we often hesitate. We've been hurt before, often by those claiming to be His People (and, often really are). We don't trust what we can't see easily, yet we may be compelled.
"Draw near to God and He will draw near to you."
Comforting words. The tough part is we take the first step. However, His presence never fails.
I hope Tilly and Emmit continue to grow closer to each other, just as I hope to deepen my relationship with God. It's certainly worth it. And sometimes it's even cute.
