I put my skirt on the sides of my quilt I am finishing up. And looking at it, the skirt only came down halfway the height of the mattress. Tacky to me, and I knew it would but me every time I saw that, so I looked for a solution. And just like my Heavenly Father that knows and loves me so well, He turned my head to my fabric pieces and my eye fell on leftovers of a beat up curtain sheer, the cotton kind not the impossible to work with sheer. And it was pretty beat up but white and had enough not beat up parts that I was able to cut out what I needed for an extra 6 inches on each side. Perfect. Beautiful. Unexpected. Useful. God. And that is what God has been doing in my life lately. I draw close to Him and He makes ugly into unexpectedly useful and beautiful. He shows me the beauty in everything. He provides even before I get a chance or am just about to ask Him. And there is no doubt that God loves and provides, friends. He walks with me, talks with me. There is no imagination in it, He is truth and clarity. Oh how I love Him and oh how He loves us, all of us He made beautifully on purpose!!! Precious Savior! Talk to Him, draw close to Him. He loves and wants that and you will never be disappointed by it!!! 🙂 Love you, friend!❤
So, driving home from Winn Dixie tonight, here was my view. And I thought, the only thing better than the ice cream I just got for the family to top off Father’s Day was this gorgeous scene my Heavenly Father painted. Wow! I wanted to share it and just brag on God a little bit. He sure paints beautiful sunset surprises!
I love surprises. I would rather be surprised, with good or bad news really. I don’t want to know until I have to if it is bad and if it good, I glean much more enjoyment if it is unexpected. Why? Because I am internally still a child in many ways. I get bored. I was adventure, seek new things, bad or good as long ass it us new. And life is absolutely full of new experiences all the time so I am happy. And today, I met with a friend and her family from my former years who we had grown through and recently had lost touch. And she was there this morning before I had put my piano away! It was so good to see them and what a great surprise!!! There is much fun and beauty and happy things to think on with such an unexpected visit from an old friend. God provides people in life to love on and be loved by when you need them. I love that about God. It is so cool because He, being my Heavenly Father, knows I love surprises and He gives me surprise blessings when I need them. God is so very good, my friend!!!!
