Sometimes – no, not just sometimes. Always! Always God leaves the ingredients for us to build a 3-corded blessing – with what’s right at our fingertips- as simple as flowers, books, and a quiet room. It’s up to me – and you – to pull those threads out of our day and braid them for a strong remembrance. These were mine this last week.
a bird call, one of my boys asking me about APA citation, my husband home from China
snowball blossoms falling in a spring wind, ice in a glass of tea, another son smiling as we exchange words in passing
seeing cousins too long not seen at a wedding, sitting over lunch talking with my aunt, bearded iris yellow, purple and white – starts from her garden.
a tall son reaching cabinet tops, rain on hungry dirt, green leaves to soften the breeze
oil from the holy land mixed with a prayer, a thousand years at sunrise, a bag of Godiva chocolates
clear ice water with lemon, humming birds visiting on the patio, a boy doing school work in the quiet, thinking room
a photo capturing what I felt when I saw, my kitchen table uncluttered, a moment out of an entire day going just as I hoped
Can you make a 3-corded blessing out of what He leaves you today?
