Love Hovers at Grandma’s House


Love Hovers at Grandma’s House

Rising in the morning
Smell of fresh coffee brewed
Grandpa making mint chocolate chip muffins
Grandkids waking up, streaming into kitchen
Morning smiles and hugs, warming hearts
When grandkids come to Grandma’s house

A new day begins
One, two, three, four, five, six grandchildren
Sitting round the table
Love of God poured out
Filled to brim through hearts of love
When grandkids come to Grandma’s house

Home, faith, family
God’s love hovers over us
As in the beginning
And in our mother’s wombs
Blessings overflow; love rises within
When grandkids come to grandma’s house.

The Hebrew word for moving means to hover with the feeling of tender love, to cherish, to brood over young ones (as an eagle). Does that not sound like a grandmother’s love for her grandkids?

This word however is figuratively used of the Spirit of God, who hovered (brooded) over the shapeless mass of the earth, cherishing and vivifying. What a picture of the Love of God set forth in the first two verses of Genesis.

Join me and read the first chapter of Genesis and let it capture your heart as you picture the Spirit of God hovering over His creation. And while you’re at it, you might want to pause and ask the LORD to hover over you with His love, as He did in the beginning.

And the Spirit of God was hovering (moving) over the face of the waters. (Genesis 1:2 NIV).

Gratefully shared,

  5. Even though I am not a Grandma, this is a great reminder to me, Glenda, of my need to hover a little more over the loved ones God has blessed me with. Thank you for this great picture of “servant-like” love, and the love of the One who created it all! XO
