honestly, very honestly, my eyes have become somewhat clouded lately. it's not that His presence is harder to see.....that His gifts do not abound. but it's that i'm choosing not to notice. as i bluster about. as i go my own way. (and now the song plays in my head, fleetwood mac, "you can go your own wayyyy".) a self-imposed decidedly ungrateful funk, i guess.
so, i'm forcing myself for pause for just a moment to
the ever-ongoing-list of the millions of ways He showers grace upon me.....
the teensy-tiniest birds' eggs
even the cow bird's eggs, too
His power painted across the sky
sweet on my tongue
a bowl to use and spoon to stir with
a companion who loves unconditionally
nighttime frog chorus
fireflies in a jar
a running chicken, something that makes me laugh every time
a better-late-then-never garden and life sprouting
my wide cuff because i'm shallow and so easily forget that He goes with me.
that i'm sheltered.
always and forever.
that in Him, there is safety and calm.
that my heart is bound to my Maker's even if my temporal feelings are screaming at me otherwise.
ok, so, yes, i also love being reminded of my friend, becky, the cuffs' talented maker, the girl God dropped into my lap who felt like a soulmate that weekend once upon a time. we're far in distance but she's never far from my heart (or wrist, ha)!
miss becky has limited her cuff-making to 10 days at the beginning of every month. you know what that means, right? today's the day. it's the 1st! she is generously offering my readers 15% off their orders. awesome. just use coupon code "megan15" at checkout. here's her shop....dream away about what you need reminding of.
happy may, y'all. it was blissfully sunny and 80 degrees here today! ahhhhhh
