When's the last time you recognized that God is GOOD?
It is amazing how an ordinary day becomes extraordinary when we open our eyes to God's goodness.
This morning Caroline took off for preteen day camp. That left Mary Claire and I to our own devices. It's Tuesday, and there is nothing really earth-shattering on our agenda. Laundry, to be honest. But, that didn't stop us from creating and enjoying beauty.
It is the simple stuff that makes the gratitude well up in my throat--that alters my reality. A sprig of mint from my garden, a bright red, fresh strawberry, the Scripture on my favorite mug, my baby girl's joy creating recipes from her Princess Tea Party cookbook.
Life can be dull, repetitious, even monotonous. It can be rocky, stressful, and downright unbearable. It can be predictable or eventful. Either way, His goodness is all around you.
