If we slow down to listen,
to see and to hear ~
Life reveals its hidden joys.
They are there.
Sometimes they hide.
By paying attention to the details,
and counting the blessings,
we give ourselves the opportunity to praise.
It's a good thing to notice. To take stock.
It's a good thing.
This Thursday, I give thanks for the hidden joys.
For the things sometimes missed.
For the evidences of HIS loving care.
I give thanks for...
~ The wooden railway set up on the office floor
~ The way it winds around Howie's desk and reminds me that
a little girl still lives here
~ The birch tree next door that was taken down
due to the fact that it was dead in places...
and, that it was cut into chunks and free for the taking!
~ Calvin's willingness to stack it
~ The shed that my Dad built and that it is full once again!
~ That there was space for *extra* wood under the trees
~ A letter from our girl...posted secretly :)
~ Two games of Monopoly laid out on the floor,
and enjoyed for days
~ A dozen roses *just because*
This Thursday, may you see the hidden joys
our Gracious Lord has blessed you with.
