One thing Ann's Joy Dare is definitely teaching me is to be on the lookout for God's graces in everything, every day. We take so much for granted--but when I stop to really think about it, every. single. thing. in my life is a blessing from him. I would have NOTHING without the grace of God! That's a rather sobering thought. I would be so lost and destitute without God. But it's also a joyful thought: I have God, or rather he has me--and he HAS given me all these good things! He really does love me so much that he's blessed me with everything I need and so much I don't need. He has given me the greatest blessing imaginable: forgiveness through his Son, and the promise of eternal life through the same.
Today Ann asks us to look for "3 yellow things that strike you as fresh mercy."
~the yellow cheese, melted and warm, between toasted slices of bread that I ate for supper.
~a hand-knitted shawl, so soft and cozy, that I love snuggling under while I read or watch a movie. It's a gift from a kind and thoughtful lady.
~the yellow billiard balls on the table where Joshua and I played a couple of games this afternoon. He's so encouraging--maybe that's why I won both games! :D
What blessings were in your life today that you might sometimes take for granted?
