Yesterday on my walk I was tired from the uphill climb to get to the grocery store and then on my way back I was burdened down with the two heavy bags I was carrying.
I stopped to rest on a bench and happened to notice a solitary Buttercup blooming. The little waxy bright yellow flower brought a smile to my face as it looked so cheerful. Even though it was not very big, nor in a prominent place, it still bloomed and in doing so made a difference in my life that day.
Remember—You Matter—wherever you are, bloom where you are planted, and you will make someone’s day better.
You’ve probably seen those signs “Men At Work” around construction zones. Well, lately considering what has been happening in my life I would say I could hang up a sign “God At Work” because of so many blessings, new opportunities and just friendly encounters I am having lately. I am really enjoying it all and giving thanks to God.
I know God is always at work in our lives but much of the time He works in the background and He doesn’t always reveal to us what He’s doing or He allows us to see it at a later time.
But sometimes He brings us unexpected surprising blessings suddenly! And it is so great to experience those!
( The word “suddenly” occurs 40 times in the KJV bible. It’s interesting to read the different things that the Lord did “suddenly” )
Find beauty and joy in the ordinary things that life brings.
“If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you, if the simple things of nature have a message that you understand, rejoice, for your soul is alive.” –Eleonora Duse
