“God loves each one of us as if there were only one of us.”

St. Augustine

“Magic moments.  You’ve had them.  Chugging a bubbling soda after a hot day of outdoor work.  Holding a little child’s hand on a walk to the park or ice cream shop.

Every good and perfect moment like this is a gift to you from God.  Every one– even the ones that seem like happenstance or coincidence.  He sends these gifts to remind us all that He is still in control, and this His supply of love and kindness will never run dry.

These gifts also remind us to keep our eyes, minds, and hearts open for the blessings, large and small, that await us in the future.  

The next time God drops one of these blessings on your tongue, take time to savor it, enjoy it.”

God has a Plan B; page 89 (Scott Degelman and associates)

God’s gifts come in all sorts of shapes and sizes for me.  Silly mismatched socks that made me smile and art time around the kitchen table are treasures.  Precious gifts I don’t want to overlook.

I pray that I can fully open my eyes to the everyday gifts that fill my world.  I pray that I can give praise and thanks to the One who provides the reason for my smiles.

Blessings to you!
