Sweeter Than Chocolate

I have a serious chocolate habit.  Milk, dark, extra dark, milky ways, and snickers galore.  Hershey bars and peanut butter cups, yes please.  When I am feeling sad, lonely, or even just bored I eagerly search for whatever chocolate I have on hand.  Entering God’s presence: is even better than the chocolate I so adore.  I grab my worship music, I press play, and I am transported to this “space” where time and reality do not mix.  I have 3 boys ((2 of whom still live at home)), 1 is a teenager and 1 thinks he’s grown so there is usually a lot of noise going on around me.  It is hard to find those 5 minutes of peace where I can just “be”.  Be in the presence of God, surrounded by His warmth and light, totally immersed.  Once I reach that “space” ((and I use “space” because I don’t know another way of putting it)) everything around me fades.  I hear no noises, smell no smells, see anything, nothing, except a tidal wave of emotion usually followed by a deep cathartic peace.  In the past, that peace seemed to come and go from me and I would have to go searching for it.  Since I got called to starting Faith Like Mary ministry, I find that peace easier ((although some days it is still a challenge for me)).  I get on the computer and the keys start flying and before I realize there’s a story there.  It’s sometimes sad, maybe funny, I never know.  Because I am in that “space” with my Lord, and that is much sweeter than any chocolate I could ever eat.
