I'm out there everyday- like you. Seeing the world, hearing the birds chirp, pulling my sleeve ends tight from the breeze. Lately I've been feeling grateful for all of it.
Just out of the blue and like a snowy day in March it came over me- a feeling that settled inside and made itself a home- gratitude. I don't know why, no cataclysmic event has sent me searching heavenword, no outward praise has sent me inward- all I know is that it distilled as soft a London-morning dew and was given as easily as a gift from God.
It happens like that, gifts from God, they just show up. Windows of heaven opened for keeping the simple commandments. Sometimes we don't even realize the moment but see the results later on. The spiritual gift of gratitude is blessing me, I feel it overwhelm my days with peace. I cannot describe what it feels like exactly, but right now I see my life at a high level perspective and see arms around each aspect, grasping me inside, holding me close, being my Savior.
The windows of heaven come from the faintest prayer, please help me be a good mom today. It is my daily morning prayer. Help me to be the most important thing in the world today, one more day, help me to do it again.
I love God. He knows us all, we are His children. His prayer to us would be- help me to be a good Father to them today, help me to be the most important thing in eternities.
And He lives, is real, and cares so very much.
