house warming and heart warming

I went to a house warming party tonight. It was for one of the young women that I work with and her husband. Some of her family and most everyone from the office came, so they received many nice gifts. I was blessed by the generosity of our co-workers....and so was she. What made it such a happy and special time for me was her enthusiasm and gratefulness. She was so excited with each gift she opened...her eyes were bright, her smile... big and genuine. I've known for a long time, that it doesn't take much to make her happy. She is easily pleased....and that is a good thing!
On the way home, I was thinking about that......I want to be easily pleased, I want to find joy in the small and insignificant as well as in the big and impressive. I want to be ever conscious that everything I have, even the air I breathe, is a gift. I didn't earn any of it and I certainly don't deserve it. But God..... but God, in His infinite love and mercy and grace and loving-kindness, not only chooses, but promises to bless and provide for me. I stand amazed!


  1. I saw your comment on Denise's blog & I'm so glad I found your blog. I'm following you now!


  2. It is so true, I forget sometimes and then I am sad because of the blessings I might of missed because I was looking at something else, very well said and very profound.

    I had something else I wanted to tell you. My daughter and I were having a talk about this latest Father Tim book, and I was asking why it was so hard for me to read, and she said, because she finished the series.

    She needs to start a different series, then she went on to tell me that you can't go back if you have finished a series, it makes the writing to hard. (She is a writer and a editor.)
    She said, That Jan Karon doesn't like Father Tim and Cynthia anymore so that is why they have changed. I have thought about it a bunch and wondered if that is true. I haven't been back to the book.
    I just thought you might be interested in what she thought about this series.

  3. This is one of the best written and most meaningful posts I've read in a while. Your prayer is my prayer...everyday. Thank you for the inspiration you brought to my heart today. I love this!

    Your new blog look is beautifully done. I sure have enjoyed my visit.

  4. oh I SO agree with you! I want to be one of those who stands amazed, and I know I do sometimes and other times I get side tracked... we have everything beause we know Him, and I want to live my gratitude each day.
    Thanks for this reminder.
