Today, Like Yesterday, is a Gift from God for a Reason

Each day is an opportunity to prove that you love God most. Each and every day is a gift from God for us to grow closer to Him. Each and every day is a gift to encourage someone else or plant a seed for their salvation. Each and every day is a glorious gift to pray more and read the Bible. Each and every day is a precious gift of another opportunity to worship God. We need to remember what we are here for and realize how precious of a gift each day is. The gift of today is amazing. Lift up your eyes and chin and make the most of this gift of today. 😄❤

Every Day is a Gift

Today, God has again given you the gift of life so that you may share it with Him. So great is His love for you that He blesses and sustains you and drops down diamonds from heaven throughout your day. All we have to do is lift our eyes to Him, accept and love Him back. What a gift your life is!😄❤

Rest Granted

The Lord granted me rest today when I needed it. The baby was not able to come over today after PE, as the car seat was “accidentally” not left for him. This was unexpected and granted me rest. I could spend time with my kids and husband, teach school, catch up on laundry, do the dishes, prepare for band practice, etc. It was wonderful, as this week is the busiest week of our lives so far this year. Crazy busy and I was feeling overwhelmed and a bit guilty for being behind in my care of my family. So God gives me this gift of time. It was amazing, and the whole time I was at perfect peace and joy. Wow! What a gift! God is so very good!😄❤❤❤

Puff Quilt Mostly Finished Now!

Well, in all my spare time, I have been working on this puff quilt for the new grandson we never get to see. It is an act of love. I had made one for our granddaughter also but it was rejected. This one might be rejected also, but I still love our daughter and grandkids so I made it anyway.

I think this is how God must feel. He gave us the gift of salvation because He loved us so much and so few accept that gift but the gift remains because He loves us. Pretty amazing, that love thing. ❤

When God Sneaks in an Answer to Prayer

I have to praise God tonight and thank Him for this weekend. I realize that He snuck in an answer to prayer. And I am here to say that as true as I am writing this, God answers prayers prayed, even those prayed over many years that you aren’t even sure of anymore but still you pray. And God loves sneaking in some love with an unexpected answer that is so so sweet! I really appreciate the love from God He showed with this answer to many prayers. So awesome is God!! ❤ ❤ ❤

A Pop of Color

After school, I painted our window sills and door thresholds a dark red. Made all the difference n in our house that frankly was a bit drab. That little pop of color added so much interest, I was eager to come home from the game tonight to see it. It is amazing how something so seemingly little adds to morale. And this had come off another criticism and another being yelled at. And God calmed my spirit, gave me joy and peace and said to paint. This was a gift He gave me. And as I painted, I prayed. An apology came later as it sometimes does but I enjoy the colors God gave us. They are a gift. And no matter what happens, I am His and am at peace and joy. The color reminds me. Simple things make the world of difference as reminders. So beautiful. God is so good.😄❤
