Today, give thanks

Rise before the sun and watch the sky turn shades of purple, pink, orange, and yellow.

Let a cat sit on your shoulder and purr into your ear.

Notice the mountains and the trees. If there are electrical wires in your view, thank God for the light they provide.

Savor the warmth of your coffee.

Stay under the sheets a little longer, and then get up and into something warm. Be relieved that it's not hot yet.

Listen to the birds. If all you hear is traffic, be thankful that we have cars to help us get around.

Say good morning to your neighbor.

As you pick up groceries, think about where they came from. They weren't always shrink-wrapped for your convenience. Someone put them together this way to make it easier for you.

For Amelia, the most incredibly beautiful baby, who is 4 days old today.

You can read this. I can write this.

Abraham Kuyper said that there is not a single square inch of the earth over which God doesn't say, "This is mine."

My friend Sam says that there is not a single square inch of the earth through which God doesn't say, "Look at me! Here I am!"

Don't let this day go by without noticing something. God won't interrupt our busy schedules, but God will be there if we look.
