Sometimes life just goes on day after day, always the same. As an introvert and perfectionist, normal days that go by without any disruption are considered a favorite for me. Don’t throw extra work at me. Don’t move up a due date. Don’t add drama to my life.
Sometimes disaster strikes, and life just goes on day after day. Things are different, but it still goes on. I remember walking out of the hospital after my mother passed out of this life into her eternal life. I could not figure out why the birds were singing or why the sun was shining. It didn’t seem right that things kept on day after day.
Sometimes, in the middle of those day after day moments, God sends a love note that results in shouts of joy.
Walking in from the car, looking up, and seeing the beautiful harvest moon
Driving to work and noticing a majestic hawk soaring overhead
Reaching into the mailbox and finding a special note from a friend
Looking up from reading to notice a nuthatch at the feeder and a downy woodpecker in the tree
Waking early in the morning to see a glorious sunrise
Answering the phone to hear a little voice say, “Hi Gamma!”
Reading Psalm 121 and feeling the security of God’s arms
Hearing the doctor say, “Everything looks good!”
Finding that item for which you’ve searched for days
Finding that item you had forgotten you had
Listening to the voices of your church family praising God
Noticing an eagle’s nest high atop a telephone pole and hearing the baby eagles’ cries
Hearing the voices of children praising God around a campfire
Eating the perfect s’more
Receiving words of affirmation that warm you to your toes
Do you respond to the love notes that God sends your way with a shout of joy? And a prayer of thanksgiving?
“Oh! Thank you, Lord!”
