Everyday Life isn't full of momentous triumphs or floods of tangible blessings. But there is no doubt everyday is flooded with more blessings and beautiful moments then we deserve. Throughout everyday there is difficulties. Plans rarely go as planned. There are plenty of things that tempt us to complain. The devil would love to steal our joy and draw our focus to the small things that plague us. A small fox can truly spoil the vine BUT ,also as powerful, small blessings can encourage beyond measure.
Today was nothing special but just another day full of many small blessings. Just another day when I felt blessed to be a child of the Lord and in His service. We are blessed to have a friend visiting us from our home church. It has been a great time of fellowship, fun and service. Today we ventured out to the zoo.
We all enjoyed seeing the animals as the raindrops fell intermittently. We met with friends and laughed and played.
The kids enjoyed seeing the zoo for the first time. I feel happy every time I get to experience my child discovering something new and the joy it brings. Then we introduced our friend to one of our favorite restaurants. We ate as much as we could handle and carried tired babies to the car. We counted our blessing to have a car on such a rainy day far from home.
