When you live your life expecting and grateful for blessings, blessings abound. I remember years ago in local diner overhearing a man respond to the waitress asking him how he was by saying, “I’m drinking from a saucer”. It was his way of saying his cup runneth over.
Well, tonight, I am drinking from a saucer. In all honesty, it’s hard to know where and how to begin sharing the blessings God’s poured out on my life lately, but here are a few…
so… I got a phone call from my son, who is attending school in Minnesota, late Saturday night. He said,”Hey I’m in Chicago.” “Whatcha doin there?” I said. “I’m on my way home for the Blessing of the Bikes“. My son and his friend drove all night to get home around 8 am to go to the blessing of the bikes. His friend got to experience the Blessing of the Bikes, and we got to hang out together for lunch and again this evening before they head back to school tomorrow. It was a fun trip and it was great to see him… and that was a blessing.
Here was another blessing… all week, they’ve been calling for the weather to be terrible on Sunday – 40’s and rainy, then 60’s and rainy… The Blessing day starts early – the church service is at 11:00 am and the actual blessing is at 12:30. We prayed for God to hold off the rain… and look how He answered the prayer… (Don’t ask me what is up with His sense of humor to send snow flurries to Murrysville on April 17… that’s another question for another day) In reality, God held the rain off in our area until after 5 PM, which gave bikers who attended our event plenty of time to get home to a dry place before the skies opened up… that was a blessing.
and.. just some funny things that happened today… it’s pretty awesome that, when you’re rocking the baby and don’t have room for a diaper bag, you can simply stuff the extra diaper right in your pocket.. that was pretty awesome. LOL
And.. it’s also pretty awesome when your phone is sitting on top of the keyboard that you’re playing, and it thinks that you are driving.. that’s pretty awesome, too.
There are just so many other blessings I’m receiving right now that I could literally go on for long time… but suffice to say that God is Good… All the time.
